Police enquiries continue after murder investigation launched into missing woman

We have issued a new photograph of Annette Smith, as they continue to investigate the 74-year-old's disappearance.

Annette from West Wing, Fairfield Hall, near Stotfold, has been missing since November, and police have confirmed they are treating her disappearance as murder.

Officers have been following a number of lines of enquiry, including carrying out house-to-house enquiries in the Stotfold area.

Over the coming days officers will also be handing out leaflets to encourage anyone with information to get in touch.

Detective Chief Inspector Katie Dounias, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “We are working really hard to find out what happened to Annette and get answers for her friends and family. We would once again urge anyone who had seen Annette prior to her disappearance to come forward and speak with us.

“Any information, no matter how small it may seem, could be vital.

“If anyone in the West Wing area has any CCTV, doorbell footage or dashcam footage from November please let us know.”

Information or footage that could help the police investigation can be submitted on the Major Incident Portal.

Alternatively, you can call 101 and ask to speak to the Major Crime Unit quoting Operation Broome.
