Speaking to The Star at South Yorkshire Police HQ at Carbrook House, she said: "It was very cold at that time of the morning and this is really out of character for Angela and nobody has seen or heard from her since.

"We're tracing her footsteps as best as we can and we believe she has headed down to the Meadowhall area but other than that, we haven't got any idea as to where she is."

Ms Simmonite is around 5ft 7 - 5ft 8ins tall, with a large build, honey blonde shoulder length hair and teeth missing at the front due to a recent fall.Police think she might be wearing a black top with a motif of different pictures on the front and black tracksuit type trousers.
