Can you help us find Hale mum-of-two Marie Scott?
It is six months to this day that Marie left her home on Sandileigh Avenue at around 12pm.
Despite extensive enquiries by detectives and numerous public appeals by her family, Marie has sadly not been found.
Officers know that on Monday 18 December 2017 she boarded a 12.30pm tram at Altrincham Metrolink station to Deansgate in the city centre where she got off at around 12.45pm.
From there she made her way along Deansgate to outside Blacks where she spoke to a couple at approximately 1pm, before walking around the Castlefield area.
Marie – who turned 58 on Boxing Day – then boarded a tram at Deansgate at 2.18pm to Victoria Station where she got into a black cab to Bury.
The taxi dropped her off in the area of The Rock shopping centre where she than walked along Rochdale Road towards Openshaw Park.
The last known sighting of Marie, which was captured on CCTV, was outside It’s a Baby on Rochdale Road at the junction with Heywood Street at 3.15pm, Monday 18th December 2017.
Detective Inspector Simon Akker, from Stretford CID, said: “Sadly it has been six months now since Marie left her home in Hale and despite extensive work by officers we have been unable to find her so far.
“I can’t imagine the pain family are going through and how worried they must be. Despite all of this they have shown immense courage and strength and continue to do everything they can to help us find Marie.
“Marie is clearly so loved and she has a beautiful family waiting for her to return.
“I implore residents, taxi drivers, shop owners and anyone who may have been in any of the locations mentioned to please think back. Did you see Marie? Do you recognise her? Or did you see someone who looks familiar? What might seem trivial to you could be the key to reuniting this family.”
Anyone with information about Marie’s whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101 quoting MP/17/0111851. Reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
