Police are appealing for information or help to trace a woman reported missing yesterday from the Bradford area.

Investigations suggest her Blue VW Polo vehicle was parked in the Cavendish Pavilion car park at Bolton Abbey in North Yorkshire at around 1pm on 23 July.

West Yorkshire Police would like to speak to anyone who has information about or has seen Mrs Susan Cowley, a 47-year-old Bradford woman who was last seen yesterday morning at her home in the Queensbury area at around 10.30am.

Mrs Cowley is a keen walker and Police believe she may be in the Bolton Abbey area in North Yorkshire where they are currently focusing their searches in conjunction with officers in North Yorkshire and the Police helicopter.

She is described as white around 5ft 7ins tall and of medium build with shoulder length brown hair.

Officers believe she was wearing jeans and a t-shirt and may have been carrying a grey Gellert back pack. It is also possible however she may now be wearing navy blue walking shoes and beige walking shorts.

Police are concerned for her safety as she suffers from a medical condition and would ask Susan or anyone who has seen her to contact Bradford South Police as soon as possible on 0845 60 60 606.



  1. We have been staying in the Bolton Abbey area over the weekend and seen the search teams looking for Susan. I am surprised that despite hundreds of visitors over the weekend, as far as I am aware none were asked for any information or given a description of Susan or asked if they had seen her. We regularly walked along the river from the pavillion to Burnsall and Grassington on Saturday and Sunday and could at any time have passed or met Susan.We have tried to remember who we met or passed but we cannot recollect having seen her but someone else might have.Perhaps leaflets with a picture of Susan given out on Sunday may have helped with information.
