UPDATE WEDNESDAY: 13:18 Midday.  Annette is STILL MISSING. She left home wearing red trousers and grey mid length puffa/quilted jacket and walking boots. Last seen 9.45 Grove Mill Lane Watford. She speaks with a German accent. Took no phone with her.

Do you have CCTV footage?… we only have ONE confirmed sighting. Look for woman in red jeans.

Last sighting 9.45am (Tuesday) Grove Mill lane Watford. We think she may have been heading towards Hemel Hempstead and beyond via the canal. Potentially walking all day.  We estimate that she could have got as far as Leighton Buzzard.

IF YOU SEE THE POLICE busy and working with dogs, drones etc. PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH OR TALK to them – just let them get on. Time & focus is precious. Find another area to search 💙

We have a cycle team currently out now on the canal route to Leighton Buzzard. Whippendell Woods is currently covered.

Thank you for the incredible shares.


Dog walkers, boaters, cyclists walkers – please look round and about you and be vigilant. Please make others aware of Annette.

Our advice from search and rescue teams is vary your routes – look 10ft either side of your usual path. Watch out for unusual responses from your dogs.

Once you’ve been out in your local area please report in comments the road/area you’ve covered so we can start building a map. Comment should Start with Town name then specific area.
