Police searching for missing Newcastle woman Margaret MacDermott release CCTV footage of potential witness.
Margaret MacDermott, who is 50, and from Bolbec Road in Fenham was last seen around 11pm on Friday evening (February 12) at her home address.
On Saturday (February 13) her car was located near to the Eye on the Tyne pub on Newcastle Quayside and CCTV enquiries showed Margaret had parked it there at around 5am that morning.
The footage showed her getting out of her car, crossing the road and walking along the river towards the Millennium Bridge where she stopped and paused.
From this point there is no further CCTV footage of her.
Enquiries to try and locate her have led to officers identifying CCTV footage from cameras near to the Baltic in Gateshead which show a person walking along Hawks Road towards Quarryfield Road and past the entrance to Gateshead College at around 6:10am.
This is around the same time that Margaret was in the area of the Millennium Bridge and not too far away.
There is a possibility that this person may have seen Margaret and may be able to help us with our enquiries.
We are appealing for this person to come forward and contact us as soon as possible as any information they could provide could be of assistance.
The person in the footage, or anyone with any information that could help with the investigation, is asked to contact police as soon as possible on 101.
