Pam Johnson: Missing Doncaster woman's family in 'come home' plea

The family of a "much-loved wife and mum" who has gone missing from Doncaster have pleaded with her to "please come home".

Pam Johnson, 63, was last seen at about 19:00 GMT on 14 March at a property in Winchester Avenue, police said.

She was thought to have been seen on CCTV at the Winchester Avenue/Thorne Road junction at about 19:30 GMT.

In a statement issued on Friday, her family said: "Please let us know where you are and that you are safe."

South Yorkshire Police said despite extensive inquiries, including search dogs, underwater search teams and drones, there had been no sightings of Ms Johnson - who is also known as Shirley.

In their statement, Ms Johnson's family said: "We are going out of our minds looking for our much-loved wife and mum.

"We are walking in circles, going around and around checking the same places over and over again."

They added that Ms Johnson was "well-loved by the community and at the school where she works, and we all miss her deeply".

Appealing directly to her, Ms Johnson's family said: "Pam, please come home. There are so many people worried about you.

"Please let us know where you are and that you are safe. You are loved by many and your family misses you."

Ms Johnson is described as white, 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall, of average build, with short, mousy brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a black coat, black trousers and black boots and was believed to be carrying a white carrier bag, according to South Yorkshire Police.

She also wears a gold cross and chain necklace, the force added.

A police spokesperson said: "We continue to urge anyone living locally to look out for anything that may help us find Pam.

"This includes searching your sheds, gardens and outhouses for anything that's out of the ordinary."
