Police in Whangarei are investigating the disappearance of 42-year-old mother Bridget Simmonds, who has been missing since February. Police and her family have grave concerns for her safety.

Bridget was the victim of an assault in early February and after that she went to stay with her mother in Kerikeri. On Saturday 23 February, her mother dropped Bridget at the Regent Countdown on Kamo Road and this is the last confirmed sighting of her.

It is not uncommon for Bridget to stay out of contact with her family but they became extremely worried after not hearing from her for two weeks and reported her missing on March 6th.

Bridget’s phone has not been used since February 23rd however her bank cards were used in Whangarei once on March 9th and twice on March 11th. Police have carried out extensive CCTV inquiries but they cannot confirm that Bridget was the one making these transactions so they would like to hear from anyone who may have seen her around these dates.

Bridget is adored by her family and they are extremely worried about her and are desperate for answers so if you know anything at all that might help, please contact Whangarei Police.
