OFFICERS searching for missing Barnsley woman Claire have released a new image and issued a map detailing her last known sightings.

A police spokesperson said: “We are sharing a new, clearer photograph we have of Claire, which has been taken from her Facebook account. Although this photo is old, we are sharing this image in the hope it will aid our ongoing investigation.

“The map shows the three confirmed sightings we have of Claire, all in the Silkstone area of Barnsley, with the last confirmed sighting now being on Monday June 24 between 2.30 and 3pm at the junction of Silkstone Lane and High Street.

We believe Claire is wearing grey trousers, a light grey or mint green jumper and a long black gilet, with the hood up.

Detective Sergeant Rebecca Robinson said: “We would like to express our thanks to those who have helped in sharing our appeals for Claire and who have provided information to help in our search.

“We are very concerned about Claire’s disappearance and have been working round the clock to find her. Our officers have been in the Silkstone area today. They are being supported by specialist teams as they concentrate their searches around High Street, Barnsley Road and Silkstone Bypass.

“At the time of the last confirmed sighting we have of Claire, we were experiencing a heatwave. We believe Claire is wearing heavy winter clothing and we hope sharing this and the map of her last sightings will jog someone’s memory.

“Claire is known to frequent church grounds and enjoys wild camping, and we would ask the public to bear this in mind as we appeal to you for more information.

“Were you in the Silkstone area during this time and did you maybe see Claire? Or are you a local resident with dashcam or CCTV footage that might help in our search?

“Officers will be in and around the Silkstone area as our search continues. They will be knocking on doors, conducting house to house enquiries, delivering leaflets and displaying posters as they progress various lines of enquiry to try and find her.

“If you have any information, please do stop and share it with us even if you think it may be small or irrelevant. It may be a vital detail in our search.”

“If you can help us, you can pass information on by calling 101, quoting incident number 440 of 24 June 2024. Alternatively, you can get in touch with us through our website here:
