It’s now four weeks since Moxley resident Amanda Hawkins was last seen getting off a bus at the Barnets Lane stop on the Lichfield Road at Brownhills – and West Midlands Police now state that they are ‘gravely concerned’ for Amanda’s welfare.

Staffordshire Search and Rescue have been engaged a few times in the search, sadly to no avail. Police have strong reasons to believe that Amanda may well be in Brownhills. If you know where she is – please do contact the authorities. Her family are beside themselves, as you can imagine.

A fortnight ago, West Midlands Police and Amanda’s family issued the following video appeal:

If you think you’ve seen anything of Amanda, heard something, anything at all, please get in touch with West Midlands Police.

Anyone who has spotted Amanda since she went missing in May is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.

I make no apologies for pushing this again. We must find this lady if we can.

Yesterday, the Express & Star issued the following updated appeal:

Police ‘gravely concerned’ for missing Brownhills woman

Police are still appealing for help to trace a vulnerable woman who has now been missing for almost a month.Despite a family appeal a fortnight ago Amanda Hawkins from Darlaston has still not returned home.

The 44 year-old was last seen travelling on a bus in Brownhills on May 30 and police have been carrying out extensive searches.

Her family issued an appeal earlier this month in a bid to find her:

Amanda is described as white, 5ft 2in and of a large build, with shoulder-length straight auburn hair, blue eyes and has a local accent.

Earlier this month her relatives urged people to check outbuildings, garages and gardens for her.

Up to 30 officers have been involved in the search. She has a history of memory loss and going missing, but only usually for days at a time, with police admitting they are ‘gravely concerned’ for her welfare. The West Midlands Police force has worked alongside their colleagues in Staffordshire to check areas she has been found before such as Stafford and Lichfield.

Anyone who has spotted Amanda since she went missing in May is urged to call Walsall Police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.
