Search for missing Pamela widens

Specially-trained police officers are continuing to search for a missing woman from County Durham.

Pamela Jackson has not been seen since Saturday 2nd March when her son spoke to her at the home they shared in The Crescent in Chester-le-Street.

Since that time she has made no contact with any friends of family, has not accessed her bank account and there has been no activity on her Facebook profile.

More than fifty officers and other staff are currently involved in the search for the missing grandmother.

Police are now searching the area around Chester-le-Street, including railway lines and the town's viaduct, and have distributed posters with her photograph across the town.

House to house enquiries have been carried out and a forensic team is continuing to examine Pamela's Chester-le-Street home.

"Even though a man has been charged with her murder, Pamela is still classed as a high-risk missing person.

"We owe it to her family to do all we can to locate her, or find clues as to where she might have gone."

"A huge amount of work is being done by all those involved and numerous leads are being followed up.

"We are also in regular contact with Pamela's family and keeping them informed of any developments,"

– Chief Inspector Elaine Taylor
