Gloucestershire Police is re-launching an appeal to find a missing woman from Gloucester, 21 years after she disappeared. Librarian Angela Bradley was 34 at the time that she went missing on January 16, 1995. She was last seen in Gloucester at around 7pm that evening. Angela's car, a white Citroen AX was later found abandoned in Tewkesbury.

Sue Oliver, one of the officers working on the enquiry today said that they felt the 21st anniversary of Angela's disappearance was an appropriate occasion to relaunch our appeal for information on her whereabouts.

"Our team would love to be able to provide information to her family, who have gone more than two decades wondering what has happened to Angela.

We'd particularly like to speak to anyone who may have spoken to her during the days leading up to her disappearance or anybody who can help us build up a picture of Angela's lifestyle prior to her disappearance"

– Sue Oliver, Gloucestershire Police

At the time that Angela went missing she was wearing light blue trousers, a dark blue tracksuit top, pink socks and black boots.

Anyone who may be able to provide information on Angela's disappearance is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 281 of January 13 2016.
