Detective Chief Inspector Paul Denn, said: “Anita has been missing for two weeks now and we are becoming increasingly concerned about her welfare.
“It is completely out of character for Anita and she has never been known to leave her daughter for such a long time.
“Yesterday we issued CCTV footage of Anita and at this moment in time this is the last sighting we have of her. From the CCTV we know that Anita was in the Albany Road area of Rock Ferry, near to the Cock and Donkey public house on Well Lane and the PRM store on Albany Road, between approximately 11.20am and 12.20pm on Tuesday, 18 October.
“I would urge anyone who saw Anita in the area on that day, or who has seen her since to contact us. I would also like to appeal to Anita herself - Anita if you are out there please contact us, or your family who are desperately worried, to let us know you are safe.”
When Anita was last seen she was wearing black Nike leggings with a pink Nike ‘swoosh’, black, pink and white Nike Air Max trainers, a white or grey T-shirt and a blue Adidas jacket with red trim on the cuffs and neck, however, she could have changed into other clothes.
Anyone who has seen, or heard from Anita, or who knows of her whereabouts is asked to contact detectives on 0151 777 2265, or the Missing People charity on 116 000. Alternatively they can email the charity on email@example.com://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news...dering-missing-12113062#ICID=FB-Liv-main
