The family of a woman who has been missing for nearly two weeks have said they are desperate to find her.

Meryl Cameron, 54, from Canonstown, near Penzance in Cornwall, has not been found despite a police search involving 20 officers and the Devon and Cornwall Police helicopter.

Her white soft-top Renault Megane was found on the B3301 at Hells Mouth, near Hayle, on Saturday 30 March.

The police search for Mrs Cameron is to be extended.

'Calm and collected'

An incident room has been set up and Mrs Cameron's home searched.

"We are still continuing to search for Meryl, and we will be extending our search areas from Hells Mouth through to her home address at Canonstown where she was last seen," a police spokesperson said.

The force said it was trying to establish Mrs Cameron's movements on Thursday 28 March and Good Friday 29 March and would like to speak to anyone who saw her or her vehicle.

Her family released a statement which read: "We are getting increasingly concerned about Meryl and we are desperate to find out where she is.

"This is so out of character for Meryl. She is a calm and collected person who is full of life and fun.

"Meryl has lots of friends who are all worried about her. Please help the police if you have any information, even if it is only the smallest snippet."

Mrs Cameron is 5ft 3in (1.6m) tall, of medium build, with blonde hair cut in a bob style.

Last week a senior police officer said "all avenues and options" were being explored to establish where Mrs Cameron could be.
