Police searching for a woman missing from South Shields have issued a fresh appeal for help.
Natalie McIntyre, 31, left her home in the Mill Dam area of the town on the evening of 11 February and has not been seen since.
Police say they have fresh information that someone matching Natalie’s description was walking near the Sundial pub on the seafront at about 08:00 the following morning.
Natalie is 5ft 3in with brown eyes and blonde bobbed hair.
She was thought to be wearing black pump style shoes, khaki green cargo trouser and a black top with gold bands on the sleeves.
Det Sgt John Baines, of Northumbria Police, said: “We have received some fresh information suggesting that Natalie was seen near the Sundial pub on the seafront last Wednesday morning.
“This is a busy path near the seafront which attracts lots of walkers, and we now want to hear from anybody who was in that area between 7.45am and 9.30am and who can provide any information as to whether they saw Natalie or not.
“We are continuing to offer support to Natalie’s family at this time and would ask anybody who has seen or heard from her, or might know her whereabouts, to come forward.”
