Have you seen missing Magdelana?

Police in Doncaster have issued a national appeal to trace missing woman Magdelana Charciarek.

Magdelana was reported missing last week

Magdelana, who is 27, was last seen around 1pm on September 30th, leaving her family’s home in Cookson Street, Doncaster, where she said she was going to the town centre.

She has not been seen since and police, along with her family, are growing increasingly concerned for her safety.

“Since Magdelana was reported missing last week we have been working with her family and have carried out a number of searches in the local area as well as issuing a media appeal.

“At this stage we have not been able to trace any further confirmed sightings of Magdelana and as you can imagine our fears for her safety are growing with each passing hour.

“We don’t believe that Magdelana has access to a bank account or mobile phone and at the time she was last seen is thought to have had around £10 in her possession.

“Magdelana speaks some English and has travelled previously but her disappearance is out of character and it’s vital we trace her whereabouts as her family are extremely concerned.

“There is a strong Polish community in Doncaster and I would appeal to members of that community to come forward if they have any information surrounding Magdelana’s disappearance.

“I would also ask anyone living or working in Doncaster to look at the pictures of Magdelana and contact us if you’ve seen anyone matching her description since last Wednesday afternoon."

– Supt Natalie Shaw, Doncaster District Police

She is described as white around 5ft 6in tall, slim build, with blue eyes and long light brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a grey coat with blue skinny jeans, a blue t-shirt, a long red scarf and carrying a black coloured leather handbag. Magdelana also wears glasses.

If you see Magdelana, or know where she might be, call South Yorkshire Police via 101 quoting incident number 1218 of 30 September.

“I feel completely humbled... It goes without saying it’s a massive honour for me personally but it’s also great to see squash recognised. Today’s ceremony will certainly be something I’ll never forget. My wife, friends and family have all been so incredibly excited since it was announced in the summer. I really do have them all to thank for helping me through the good and the bad times as a professional athlete, I don’t think I could have achieved as much without their unwavering support."
