Police in Gwynedd have asked people to check gardens and outbuildings as a search for a missing woman continues.

An extensive search is still underway for Susan Jane Wright, 59, who was last seen near her home in Carmel near Caernarfon on Good Friday.

Officers say a number of walkers would have been in the area on the Easter weekend and could have seen her.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.

North Wales Police say they have had one potential sighting of Ms Wright at around 15:20 BST on Easter Sunday, walking through Carmel in the direction of Groeslon or back towards the centre of the village.

Meanwhile the ongoing search involves the police helicopter, mountain rescue teams, search and rescue dogs, and the RAF.

Police divers are also investigating ponds in the area.

"We are making a further appeal for sightings of Susan Jane Wright," said inspector Kevin Bratherton of North Wales Police.

"Members of the public are asked to cast their minds back to the time and date when she was potentially last seen, in a bid to establish if anyone else has seen her since.

"This was the Easter weekend and there would have been lots of walkers about that may have seen Susan.

"We are also asking people who live in the vicinity of Carmel and surrounding villages to search their gardens, outbuildings or any containers that may be used as a shelter."

Ms Wright is described as white, around 5ft 10ins tall with dark brown shoulder length hair which is greying.

She is also described as having a fair complexion, green coloured eyes and may possibly be wearing glasses with a pink charm in them.

The 59-year-old is believed to be wearing a dark green or grey puffa-style jacket and is possibly wearing walking boots.
