Police issue appeal for missing woman

POLICE have issued a appeal for information for the whereabouts of missing woman Lesley McHugh.

A PSNI spokesperson said today that they and the family of missing 69-year-old are becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare.

They said, “Lesley, who is described as being approximately 5’6” tall, of slim build with brown hair was last in contact with her family around 11pm on Saturday January 6.  Searches are ongoing along the River Mourne into the River Foyle and police would appeal for those searching to be mindful of their own personal safety given the current weather conditions.”
