The family of a missing Black Country pensioner have put up an £8,000 reward for information leading to her safe return.
Margaret Elliot, aged 75, from Oldbury, who suffers from advanced Alzheimer’s, went missing from her home in Branford Crescent on June 28.
A friend saw her at 9.15am on Windsor Road, close to her house, on the day she disappeared, but it is not known where she went after that.
Now, her distraught children, James and Kate, have made a fresh appeal for help to trace their mum.
James said: “If anybody out there knows where our mum is then please get in touch with the police. If they see her we urge them to get in touch and stay with her until a police officer arrives.
“Depending if she is having a good day or a bad day she may not recognise her own face on television and newspaper appeals.
“If she does see this appeal we want her to get in touch with us or the police as soon as possible.
“The last few weeks have been torture for us. We have never experienced anything like this before.”
Mrs Elliot is believed to be in a confused and distressed state as she does not have her medication with her.
Polices forces across the country have been notified of Mrs Elliot’s disappearance and investigating officers have not ruled out the possibility that she may have left the Midlands region.
Detective Inspector Gary Dring, from West Midlands Police, said: “This is still being treated as a missing person enquiry.
“Our investigations are being led by information from the public. Every piece of information will be followed up by our officers.”
