Did a group of surfers see Pauline Edwards?

Police investigating the disappearance of a Flintshire woman more than a week ago say a group of surfers could hold vital information.

Pauline Annette Edwards, 68, from Buckley, was on holiday in Trefor, Gwynedd, when she was last seen at 1600 GMT on Friday, 5 February.

On Monday, police suspended the search, saying they had "exhausted all potential avenues".

The surfers were seen in the Trefor area shortly before she disappeared.

Inspector Mark Armstrong said: "We are very keen to speak to a group of surfers who were seen in the Trefor area shortly before Mrs Edwards was last seen, who may be able to provide some invaluable information in assisting us to piece together Mrs Edwards movements that afternoon.

"Whilst we have exhausted land and sea based searches at this time, a team of detectives are reviewing as much information about Mrs Edwards's background that may provide us with a lead that may assist us in locating her."

Mrs Edwards is described as being 5ft 2in (152cm) tall, of slim build and has collar length straight brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a black coat with a fur collar, three quarter length black trousers and black boots.

Anyone with information can contact North Wales Police on 101 (if calling from Wales), 0845 607 1001 (Welsh language), 0845 607 1002 (English language) or the independent charity Crimestoppers Wales on 0800 555 111.
