Police have appealed for help in tracing a woman, missing from a hotel at a Conwy seaside resort.

Alison Manning, 58, from Market Drayton, Shropshire, has not been seen since Friday night.

She had been staying at the Risboro Hotel in Llandudno and left the hotel at around 2130 BST.

Search and rescue dogs, the Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team and the North Wales Police helicopter continued the search.

Coastguards, lifeboat and mountain rescue teams had joined a search of the resort on Saturday.

North Wales Police said she contacted a family member at around 2300 BST and has made no further contact.

Police and her family said they are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety and whereabouts.

She is described as white, 5ft 1ins tall, with short blonde hair which is greying slightly.

Ms Manning was last seen wearing a green or green/blue coloured light raincoat, brown trousers, sandals, and was carrying a large cream coloured handbag.

"I'm also appealing to Alison herself to contact us and her family to let us know that she is safe and well," said Insp Tony Wan.

The Llandudno RNLI inshore lifeboat was involved as part of the investigation on Saturday.

The first was a two-hour search of cliffs and shoreline around the Great Orme headland.

The RNLI then joined the Llandudno coastguard's cliff rescue team, mountain rescue personnel and the North Wales Police helicopter in a low water search for nearly two hours in the evening.

The RNLI said there was a "painstaking search" of the shoreline and cliffs, rocks, boulders and caves in the cliffs.

Police have appealed to anyone who has seen her, who may know of her whereabouts or for Ms Manning herself to get in touch with police in Llandudno on 101 (if in Wales) 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line) 0845 6071002 (English language line).
