Detectives in Doncaster have issued a nationwide appeal for help in tracing a woman reported missing last week.

Magdelana Charciarek, aged 27, was last seen at around 1pm last Wednesday as she left her family’s home in Cookson Street, Doncaster, planning to go to the town centre.

Superintendent Natalie Shaw, of South Yorkshire Police, said “Since Magdelana was reported missing last week we have been working with her family and have carried out a number of searches in the local area as well as issuing a media appeal.

“At this stage we have not been able to trace any further confirmed sightings of Magdelana and as you can imagine our fears for her safety are growing with each passing hour.

“We don’t believe that Magdelana has access to a bank account or mobile phone and at the time she was last seen is thought to have had around £10 in her possession.

“Magdelana speaks some English and has travelled previously but her disappearance is out of character and it’s vital we trace her whereabouts as her family are extremely concerned.

“There is a strong Polish community in Doncaster and I would appeal to members of that community to come forward if they have any information surrounding Magdelana’s disappearance.

“I would also ask anyone living or working in Doncaster to look at the pictures of Magdelana and contact us if you’ve seen anyone matching her description since last Wednesday afternoon.”

Magdelana is white, around 5ft 6ins tall, slim, wears glasses and has blue eyes and long, light brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a grey coat with blue skinny jeans, a blue T-shirt, a red scarf and was carrying a black leather handbag. Magdelana also wears glasses.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident 1,218 of September 30.
