Gae Denise Pantel
Police have concerns for the safety of a 67-year-old
Mosgiel woman last seen yesterday evening.
Gae Denise Pantel was last seen around 8.30pm when she went
to bed early. She had been staying at the home of friends in
Riccarton Road East, East Taieri.
Family and friends have been searching for Mrs Pantel since
this morning in Mosgiel and around Kaka Point, an area Mrs
Pantel had expressed an interest in visiting.
Police say they have concerns for Mrs Pantel's safety as she
suffers from ill-health.
She may be on foot as her car remains at her friends'
address, as do items such as her credit cards and her mobile
Mrs Pantel is of slight build and short in stature. While
it's not known what clothing she is wearing, it's likely to
be similar to that she is wearing in the photograph above.
Although she is wearing glasses in the photograph, it's not
believed that she has taken these with her.
Police have asked members of the public to keep an eye out
for Mrs Pantel and to contact police if they see her.
Police, who have been advising and liaising with Mrs Pantel's
family, are this evening conducting an initial intensive
search of a 300 metre radius from the address in Riccarton
Road East where Mrs Pantel was staying.
