A SEARCH has been launched for a woman who has gone missing.

Christine Thomas, 39, was last seen around midday on Tuesday walking in the Northern Parade area of Portsmouth.

Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for her safety and are asking the general public to report any sightings to us.

Christine is described as being a white female who is about five feet and eight inches tall and has long dark black hair.

She was last seen wearing straight cut black jeans, black Skechers trainers, a thin black showerproof jacket and it is likely that she also had a black over-the-shoulder bag with her which had a Mickey Mouse charm keyring and zip on the front. 

Police are asking anyone who saw her yesterday afternoon or today to call 101, quoting 44210059115, or call 999 in an emergency.
