Fresh appeal over missing mother
Natalie Putt
Natalie Putt has not been seen for four years
Police looking for a missing Black Country mother admit they have no concrete leads, four years after she was last seen.

Natalie Putt, who was originally from Aberystwyth, was 17 when she was last seen leaving her home in Gornal, near Dudley, to go shopping in 2003.

Her family believe she would not have deliberately left her baby son behind.

West Midlands Police said they had received several anonymous tip offs but were no closer to finding her.

'Never give up'

Police investigated a supposed sighting of Natalie in Plymouth in January this year but established that it was not her.

Det Insp Sue Spencer said: "We would always be very grateful of any information that anybody may have that would give us the whereabouts of Natalie.

"It's unlikely that we will ever close the case because quite often people do vanish and they still do turn up years later.

"We never give up hope of finding Natalie, we certainly hope that this fresh appeal will bring forward some new inquiries for us."
