The family of a woman who has been missing for four weeks have made a fresh appeal for information.

Meryl Cameron, 54, from Canonstown, near Penzance in Cornwall, has not been found despite a police search.

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

As well as asking for information, her family asked her directly to contact them, saying they were "beside themselves with worry".

'Come home'

Twenty officers from Devon and Cornwall Police, plus a police helicopter, were involved in an initial search for Ms Cameron.

During the new appeal - made by her sister, Pippa Ramage, and her mother - Ms Ramage said: "It's now been four weeks since her disappearance.

"Every single day we wonder where she is and what may have happened to her. Our family are beside themselves with worry, and we really need to know where she is.

"Meryl, please contact us. We need to know you're safe and well. We love you. Come home."

They added that they hoped anyone with information would also contact police.

Police have been 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.

Supt Jim Pearce, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said "extensive searches and detailed inquiries" were still under way.

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