(Updated 6:12pm 1st March 2013)
Police Search and Rescue teams are stepping up their efforts to find missing pensioner Sara Taylor in Beaminster.
The 76 year old has been missing from her home in the town since around 3pm yesterday afternoon (Thursday 28 February 2013.)
Specialist Police teams and sniffer dogs are searching the town tonight (Friday 1st March).
WPC Sue Hillier is calling on the public to help:
Inspector Bob Jacobs said: "I understand that Sara can be easily confused and her family are understandably concerned that she may come to some harm.
“I believe that it’s likely that Sara is still in the Beaminster area. She is reasonably fit for her age and she has been known to walk considerable distances.”
Sara is white, well built, around five feet seven inches tall, with short grey hair.
It’s thought that she was wearing dark red trousers, a light coloured jacket and wellington boots when she was last seen.
Inspector Jacobs continued: “It’s important that we make sure that Sara is safe and well and I am urging anyone who has seen a woman matching Sara’s description to contact police on 101.
Anyone with any information or knowledge as to Sara’s whereabouts should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 28:316.
