Officers searching for missing woman, Barbara Colling, are appealing for a vital witness to come forward.
The man was driving a dark blue estate car south along the B1257 close to Newgate Bank, on Monday January 28th.
A witness told police that they believe the man driving the car exchanged waves with a woman believed to be Barbara as she walked along the road.
It is not believed that this man has yet spoken to the police.

“I am appealing to the driver of the blue estate-type car to come forward straight away as they may be able to give a more precise location as to where Barbara was last seen.
I ask them to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass the information to the Force Control Room.”
Anyone who can help locate Barbara Colling is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police immediately by dialling 101, selecting option 1 and passing the information to the Force Control Room.
