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.
