Temporary Inspector Ian Holland, said: "No-one has heard from Lois for four days now and we are becoming increasingly concerned for her wellbeing.

"Due to the length of time Lois has been missing for, and the fact that regular contact has now stopped, I’d urge anyone who has seen or spoken to her over the past week to get in contact with us so we that can ensure she is ok."

Lois is slim and has blonde hair, which she often wears tied up.

She also often wears gold-hooped earrings.
