If you own CCTV, live in the Moor Nook area and haven’t already been contacted by an officer, please check your footage.

Brenda was last seen at her home on Marl Hill Crescent at 2am on Friday morning but could have left at any point between 2 and 10am.

Chief Inspector Gary Crowe said: “If you have any footage that potentially shows Brenda, or if you have seen a woman matching her description, we need to hear from you.

“Any information, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, could prove crucial to our investigation.

“Furthermore, I would also urge Brenda, if she sees this appeal, to get in touch with us, a friend or relative and let us know she is okay.”

Brenda is described as being 5ft 4in tall, of slim build with blonde hair that is styled in a bob. We had previously issued a description of Brenda’s clothing, however it is now not known exactly what she was wearing.

Aside from Moor Nook, she has links to Walton-le-Dale and Longridge.

If you have seen Brenda please call police immediately on 01772 209702 or 101 and quote log number 652 of the 11th.
