Police say they're very concerned for the safety of Glynis Kennedy who's vanished while out walking her golden retriever dog. Her disappearance is completely out of character.

She set off from her home in Deanwood Avenue in Allerton at half past four this afternoon and her normal route is around Chellow Dean Woods, quarry and reservoirs.

She was wearing a light blue fleece jacket, black Reebok tracksuit bottoms and grey and blue walking shoes. Mrs Kennedy was only supposed to be out for a short time. Detectives are asking for anyone who's seen Mrs Kennedy, or her dog which hasn't been found to contact them.

Steven Allison, 37, from Bradford failed to turn up at court in February last year when he was due to be sentenced for two sexual assaults.

Allison, formerly of New Street in Idle, was sentenced to 30 months in his absence.

The offences occurred against two women at licensed premises in Yeadon, Leeds in June 2013.

Enquiries made by Bradford District's Public Protection Unit and Interpol traced him to Australia, where he had been working on construction sites.

He was located in January this year and subsequently held in a detention centre. He was brought back to England today and is expected to attend court before being transferred to prison.
