A SEARCH is underway in Horringer for a missing 44-year-old Essex woman.
Helena Lopes was last seen when she got out of a friend’s car on the A143 just outside Horringer at around 8:50pm yesterday, Saturday 19 May. She has not been in contact since.
She is described as white, 5ft 7ins, of medium build and with brown shoulder length hair. She was wearing blue jeans, a blue sleeveless jacket, a long grey jumper and grey fingerless gloves.
A search of the area began last night and has resumed this morning with the support of 20 to 25 members of Lowland Search and Rescue.
A spokesman for Suffolk Police said: “Officers are growing increasingly concerned for Helena’s welfare and are asking people in the area of Horringer to keep an eye out for her.”
If anyone sees someone matching Helena’s description they are asked to contact the Police on 101.
