POLICE are appealing for information to help identify a woman over concerns for the safety of her and her child.

She was seen arriving at the Premier store on Barnsley Road, Wombwell at 10.35pm on November 6.

The woman drove to the shop in a black 57 plate Vauxhall Meriva.

She entered the shop and reportedly left her young child in the car.

Residents reported hearing the car collide with something as she drove off – but the woman left the scene.

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “CCTV footage was unable to pick up the registration of the car and we are asking your help to trace her.

“Do you know this woman? It’s possible the car she was driving has crash damage.

“Any information can be reported to us through 101 quoting incident number 1127 of November 6.”
