Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing woman from Dorchester.

Joan is described as white, with short grey hair and of medium build and normally wears glasses. She may be wearing denim jeans.
“Concern is increasing for Joan as we believe that she has been upset recently. A thorough search is being carried out in the local area with assistance of the National Police Air Service helicopter. She doesn’t have a car so may be travelling on foot or public transport. We are now becoming very worried for her safety and I urge her to get in touch as soon as possible – we simply need to know that she is safe and well."

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an aggravated burglary in the Boscombe area of the town.
The incident happened at around 5pm on Saturday 18 October 2014 at an address along Palmerston Road.
A large group of men wearing balaclavas entered the house and approached the victim. One man held a gun to the victim’s head while another held a knife to his throat – they all spoke with London accents.
The victim who is in his late teens was subsequently sprayed in the eye with an acid type substance and is still recovering in hospital.
The victim has described one of the attackers as white, around six feet tall, of thin build and wearing a grey beanie hat and scarf or balaclava. He had a pronounced bridge area on his nose and was wearing a dark blue waterproof coat.
“This was a very distressing incident for the victim having suffered a serious eye injury. I would urge anyone who saw suspicious activity along Palmerston Road between 4.50pm and 5.30pm on Saturday 18 October to come forward. Anyone with information about the men responsible should contact police in confidence.”
