Dyfed Powys Police says there is growing concern for missing Courtney Norris from Whitland.

She was last seen when she was dropped off at Whitland train station sometime between 9:30am and 10am on Saturday morning. She was expected to return home that evening.

Courtney bought a train ticket shortly after 10am but officers don't know her destination. She is described as being around 5 feet tall with long, mousey brown hair. It is believed she is wearing a cream and black top, white jeans, ripped at the knee, and carrying a cream handbag.

Courtney has connections to both Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and may have travelled from Whitland train station in either direction. Anyone with information should call 101.

Dyfed Powys Police warning to dog owners

Police are warning dog owners to keep their pets under control whether at home or out in public.

The warning from Dyfed-Powys Police comes after what they say is a notable increase in reports of incidents involving dogs in Powys in the last few months.

The force says any dog of any breed or type can be considered dangerous in any place if it is not kept under control. The dog doesn’t have to bite anyone, it could just show aggressive behaviour that makes someone feel in fear for their safety.

To avoid further increase in such incidents, officers urge owners to be extra vigilant when taking their dogs for walks in public areas and to ensure that the dogs are secure when at home.

Number of incidents:

  • April: 4
  • May: 15
  • June:10
  • July: 6

I urge anyone walking their dog to be mindful and take appropriate precautions - such as keeping them on a lead. It is also important that dogs are kept secure when at home to prevent any incidents.

While there are precautions that can be taken to keep dogs under control, there are also consequences for those dogs that become a danger to the public and we will enforce where necessary.
