The woman, who is known only as Annie, was last seen in Buxton at midday on Christmas Eve (December 24) at Spring Gardens – walking towards Fairfield Road.

Annie, who had been living at a campsite in Monyash since the summer, was wearing a purple trench coat, black trousers and dark walking boots. She was carrying a walking pole and had a dark shopping trolley with her.

Have you seen Annie?

Officers are concerned for Annie’s safety – particularly with the poor weather forecast over the next 24 hours – and are appealing for anyone who may have seen Annie or may be aware of her current location to get in touch.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Derbyshire Police on 101, including reference number 637-241220.
