Police and the family of a Tyrone woman who has been missing for a number of months today appealed again for her to contact them.

Charlotte Murray (34), who is originally from Omagh but had been living in Moy, was reported missing in May but family and friends have not had contact with her since last November.

Charlotte is described as five ft four ins tall, of slim build with a pale complexion, blue eyes and brown hair, although she has been known to change her hair colour. She is single and worked in catering. 

PSNI area commander for Dungannon and Cookstown, Chief Inspector Jane Humphries, said: “Despite several enquiries over the past two months, police have been unable to make contact with Charlotte. A previous appeal for information in May did not put her in touch with us. We are becoming increasingly concerned for Charlotte’s safety. 

“We are releasing a photo of Charlotte today along with posters and leaflets which will be used as part of our ongoing enquiries to locate Charlotte in Moy, Dungannon and further afield.

“I have three appeals. The first is to Charlotte: if you see this or hear this appeal, please get in touch. Present yourself to police, at any station, so that we can establish that you are safe.

“The second is to anyone who thinks they may have seen or spoken to Charlotte at any time since last October or November. We need to know when and where this encounter took place and what Charlotte was doing.

“Thirdly, we are appealing to anyone who knows where Charlotte is now or what might have happened to her. We need you to contact police for Charlotte’s sake and for the sake of her family who are becoming increasingly anxious.”

Charlotte’s identical twin, Denise, said: “Charlotte is a free spirit who likes to do her own thing but this is out of character. She moved to Moy a few years ago and we were not in regular contact. All the family are worried that she hasn’t been in contact with any of us. We are very worried. We want Charlotte to get in touch so that we know she’s OK.” 

Police have set up a special telephone number for anyone with information about Charlotte – it is 028 3751 7390.
