Police are appealing for sightings of missing Northland woman Bridget Simmonds

The 42-year-old was last seen about midday on February 23rd when she was dropped off by family at Countdown Regent in Whangarei.

She was reported missing on March 6, and Police immediately began making a number of enquiries to help locate her.

“Bridget hasn’t been in contact with her mother or family since she disappeared, which they say is very unusual. They are growing increasingly worried about her,” Detective Constable Joseph Reuben says.  

She was last seen wearing a dark coloured singlet and black jeans. She has a large distinctive tattoo on her upper left arm of a fairy.

She had three large black and grey backpacks with her.

Police believe she may have taken a taxi or may have been offered a ride back to her home address that day.

Anyone who may have picked her up in their car or taxi or taken her anywhere is urged to contact Police.

“Police, and her mother and family, just want to make sure she is safe.”

Police are also interested in hearing from anyone who may have been in contact with her in the weeks leading up to her disappearance.

Anyone with information as to her whereabouts can contact Detective Constable Joseph Reuben on 021 191 5901 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
