Woman missing in Kent

A 49-year-old woman has been reported missing from her home in Herne Bay. Angela Gullett was last seen at home in Pettman Close at 6.30am on 4th March 2013.

Angela’s family, and the police, are very worried about her as the circumstances around her disappearance are unusual and out of character.

She is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, of large build with shoulder length straight brown hair and brown eyes. The last time anyone saw her, she was wearing a brown fleecy coat, dark coloured jeans, dark blue shoes and she was carrying a black and pink backpack.

If anyone has seen a woman fitting this description they are asked to call police immediately on 101. If Angela sees this appeal she is asked to get in touch with her family or the police.
