Police are growing concerned for the welfare of a missing woman who has links to Dagenham.

Karen Sanders has not been seen by her family since the afternoon of January 29, say Essex Police.

Officers said the 39-year-old is missing from her home in Grays, something very “out of character”.

Karen has very long, blonde hair that she normally wears in a top knot.

She wore a red jumper, black coat, blue jeans and white trainers around the time of her disappearance.

Anyone who has seen Karen or knows of her whereabouts should call Grays police station on 101.
