Searches of the Northumberland countryside are continuing for Janis Hall, who has been missing for more than a week.
There has been no contact with Mrs Hall since she spoke to a member of her family on the telephone on 19th December. She was reported missing from her home in Catton later that night.
Earlier this week, Mrs Hall's daughter, son and daughter-in-law appealed for people to report any sightings of their mother to the police.
