June Turner

Appeal to trace missing woman

Officers investigating the disappearance of a 75-year-old woman who went missing nearly two weeks ago are continuing with the investigation to find June. 

June Turner was last seen at approximately 8am on Monday 21 October near Sainsburys in North Walsham.

Extensive searches have been conducted over the past two weeks by specially trained officers, working with Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue, National Police Air Service, drones, dogs and horses. Within the search parameters, areas have been searched to a high confidence level. This has included checking gardens, alleys, wasteland and industrial units. 

Approximately 35 members of the community in North Walsham assisted officers by handing out missing posters in order to encourage local residents to remain vigilant and help in the search for June.

Chief Inspector Matt Dyson said: “We have now conducted extensive searches to try and trace June, working with key partners in the area to gather information. We have followed a number of lines of enquiry including CCTV footage, sightings, speaking with local businesses and have utilised a number of resources.

Although the land based search effort has been concluded, a small team of officers continue to investigate the circumstances of June’s disappearance. 

I would like to thank the community for their help in the search for June and should we receive any further information we will review this and act accordingly.”

June is described as white, approximately 4ft 11 tall and she has short, brown permed hair.

Anyone who may have seen June, or anyone who may know of her whereabouts, is urged to contact Norfolk Police immediately on 101 quoting CAD 156 of Tuesday 22 October 2019.
