Family pleads for mother to return
THE FAMILY of Susan Hibberd, who went for a walk on Saturday lunchtime and did not return, are asking her to come back home.
The 48-year-old mother-of-two, who lives in Noredown Way in Royal Wootton Bassett, was last seen leaving her home address at around noon.
When she did not come home again her family alerted the police, who have been looking for her ever since.
Police spent most of Sunday searching the area and the countryside around her home, and spent time patrolling the Noremarsh area.
Officers spoke to residents up and down Noredown Way, asking if they had seen their missing neighbour or had any suggestions as to where she could have gone and when she might be coming back.
The family is hoping that Susan will return to her husband and two daughters at their Bassett home on her own.
A family member had even left a note for her while they were with police at Gablecross police station.
The note, which was duct-taped to the dustbin outside the family home, was written to ‘Mum’ and said that they had gone with officers to the police station, and that when she got home she should not worry but was asked to stay at the house.
Wiltshire Police has launched a public appeal to help find the missing woman, and is asking for anyone who has information on her disappearance or where she has gone to get in touch.
Susan is described as white, and she is thought to have been wearing a grey raincoat with black patches on when she left on Saturday afternoon.
She has brown, shoulder-length hair that looks black and curly when wet, and she wears glasses.
Anyone with information as to Susan’s whereabouts should contact Wiltshire Police immediately on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
