CCTV images have been released of a woman who has now been missing from her Keysoe home for six days.
Margaret Hickling, 67, has not been seen since about 7.30am on Friday, January 13 and police are increasingly concerned about her.
Following an appeal, officers have today (Wednesday) confirmed a sighting of Margaret on a Grant Palmer bus from Keysoe to Bedford at about 9am on Friday.
It is thought she got off in St Peter’s Street and walked towards the High Street.
Margaret, who is white, 5ft 4in tall, of slight build and has dark grey hair, was wearing a long beige skirt under a long dark coat and was carrying a handbag.
Det Insp Dani Fitzharris said: “We are very concerned for Margaret and I would urge anyone who saw her in Bedford on Friday or knows of her whereabouts now to call police.
“I would also appeal to Margaret directly to get in touch - your family are very worried about you, please let them know you are ok.”
