Police have located an image of long-standing missing woman June Brockway (nee Bryan).
The officer in the case has received calls and information from the public in the two weeks since going public with the case and is hoping that the release of the image, courtesy of the Plymouth Herald, may stir up more memories.
It is known June discharged herself from the Royal Naval Hospital in Stonehouse on December 28 1979 and went home.
It is now thought that, after returning home and packing a bag, she took a taxi to the North Road area with a view to seeking accommodation or catching a train to the Bristol or Cardiff areas.
She was described at the time as white, 5’ 3”, of thin build, with brown eyes and with shoulder-length dark brown, thinning hair.
She was known to habitually wear a chocolate brown overcoat and wore a platinum wedding ring.
The officer in the case, PC Ian Watson, said: “We have had some interesting information passed from the public and we are now appealing for more info to help us solve this long-running mystery.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Watson on phone number 101 ref (PID5511)
