THE FRIEND of a Hucknall pensioner who has been missing for a fortnight has made an appeal for her to come home.

Police are trying to track down June Watson-Parkinson, who was last seen at home at 9 am on Thursday April 5.

The 67-year-old is believed to have caught a Nottingham-bound tram at Hucknall’s main town-centre tram-staion.

She is then understood to have boarded an East Midlands Train train in Nottingham before being spotted leaving St Pancras train station in London at 7.35 pm later that same day.

Friend Rosemary Wagg said: “I was supposed to be meeting up with June in Nottingham that evening. But she wasn’t there and didn’t come home that night. We were supposed to be going shopping the next day.

“She has never mentioned anything about London before so it’s very strange that she would be pictured there. The sooner we can get her back, the better.”

Police say it is out of character for Miss Watson-Parkinson to break contact with friends. She has a number of medical conditions but is believed to have not taken her medication with her.

Miss Watson-Parkinson is described as 5’ tall, white and of small build, with hazel-coloured eyes and short, straight brown hair. She wears glasses.

She was last seen wearing a red parka-style hooded coat, blue jeans and trainers. She was carrying a cream bag and was wearing a bracelet on her right wrist.

Miss Watson-Parkionson usually wears an SOS talisman on a chain around her neck, which includes her details in case of emergency.

Anyone with information is asked to ring Nottinghamshire police on the new non-emergency number of 101 or to call the free and confidential Crimestoppers hotline on 0800 555111.
