Police appeal to missing Byker woman

As the appeal for help to trace a missing Byker woman continues, police are appealing directly to Pau Kim Lau to contact them.

"We have footage of Pau Kim leaving Molineux Court at 5.50pm and through enquiries we have found further footage showing her walking in Warwick Street and Stoddart Street and outside of the Tesco store.

"She has made this journey on foot and I'd ask anyone who was in those areas on May 2 to think back to whether they might have seen Pau Kim walking in the area.

"We are checking the route for any more CCTV cameras on local businesses and people's homes."

– Newcastle Area Commander, Chief Superintendent Laura Young

"I'd urge Pau Kim to get in touch with her family, police, or any of her friends and let them know she is safe. I'd urge anyone who knows where Pau Kim is to let us know as soon as possible, her family are incredibly worried and concerned for her safety and they just want to know that she is OK."
