Police have issued a fresh appeal for help in finding a vulnerable West Midlands woman, missing since May 30, who is  known to like visiting the Stafford area.

New CCTV footage has been found which shows missing Darlaston woman Amanda Hawkins travelling on a 10A  bus in Brownhills on the afternoon of Friday 30 May. 

 Police have released the images as they continue their search to find the 44-year-old who hasn’t been seen since 9am that morning. 

  Amanda has been missing seven times before and has often been found in Lichfield and Stafford.

 Detective Constable Claire Walker is one of the officers on the search investigation team. She said: "Those who support Amanda at her assisted living centre are very worried about her as is her mother who lives in Streetly. 

 "Since she was reported missing at the end of May we’ve been working hard to find her. We’ve alerted local bus companies so that drivers can keep their eyes peeled, we’ve conducted house to house enquiries and officers have searched the Moxley neighbourhood. 

"Staffordshire Police have also been alerted to her disappearance so that they can search Stafford. We’ve also asked them to search Lichfield as she has been found there before when missing and her mum says she loves to visit the cathedral." 

 Amanda left home with only her bus pass, a mobile phone and around £30 in cash. 

 "Amanda suffers from memory loss meaning she often forgets where she is and wanders around. I would ask that people help us by looking at the latest photograph of Amanda and getting in touch if they can recall seeing her over the past week." 

 Amanda is described as white, 5ft 2ins tall, large build, shoulder length straight auburn hair, blue eyes and a local accent. She is believed to be wearing a green coloured jacket. Anyone who has spotted Amanda since she went missing in May is urged to call Walsall Police immediately on 101.
