Police have carried out an extensive leaflet and poster drop in the hope of generating leads in the disappearance of an OAP.

83-year-old woman Mary (Marion) Scott disappeared from her Market Rasen home on December 27.

Police are increasingly concered for her welfare and continued to carry out enquiries throughout the night and foot and vehicle searches today (Friday).

Mary is 5’4”, of slight build with short black hair. She has Alzheimer’s but is described by police as active and agile.

An extensive leaflet and poster drop was carried out last night and motorists were stopped and questioned in and around Market Rasen. Officers said they will continue this activity over the next couple of days.

They added that recent media coverage had lead to a number of members of the public getting in touch with officers. Several lines of enquiry were followed up, but there have been no further positive sightings of Mary.

Insp Simon Outen said: “We will be continuing our searches with specialist officers and dogs over the weekend. The local community have been amazing in their support for the searches and Mary’s family.

“We are asking them to help us over the weekend by continuing to check their land, sheds, barns and outbuildings every day to see if Mary s seeking shelter there.

“We would also ask farmers, people walking their dogs, horse riders and people taking part in hunts over the weekend to be vigilant.”
