Laura Dodon, 43, was last seen over a week ago.

Police are appealing for the public's help to find Laura Dodon.

She was last seen in Weymouth on Tuesday 21st July 2020 and was reported missing on Monday 27th July 2020 after failing to contact her family.

Dorset Police believe that Laura was seen later that week, either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. 

She was walking away from her home in Gladiator Green in the direction of Maiden Castle Road carrying a rucksack.


Laura is described as white, five feet three inches tall, of medium build, with long dark hair, which she usually wears in a bun. It is not known what she is wearing.

Chief Inspector Neil Wood, of Dorset Police, said: 

“Officers are continuing their search for Laura and are making a number of enquiries. During those we have been able to gain further information. However, the additional sightings are still from quite a few days ago and it is not clear where Laura might have been heading when she was seen leaving her home with a rucksack.

“We have also found out that Laura has a number of links with the Bournemouth area and I am hoping that our appeal can be shared in this area as well.

“As it has been at least a week since anyone has seen Laura or had any contact with her, our concern for her remains. Therefore, I would ask anyone who has information that might assist us finding her to please contact Dorset Police urgently.

“If Laura sees this appeal, I would urge her to contact us. Your family is very worried about you – we all want to ensure you are safe and well.”

Anyone with information or knowledge as to where Laura might be is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting incident number 27:215.
