Concerns grow for missing Oldham pensioner, 75, suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s

Concerns are growing for a missing 75-year-old Oldham woman suffering from severe dementia and Alzheimer’s – after it’s believed she may have travelled to the city centre.

UPDATE: Isobel has now been found safe and well.

Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace Isobel Byrom, from Loughrigg Avenue in Royton, who was last seen by neighbours at her home around 3pm on June 29.

Her family, who found she was not at home the following morning, believe she did not stay the night at her house.

They also believe that despite suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s, Isobel may have used public transport, in particular buses and trams, to travel to Rochdale, Manchester, Bury or Bolton.

She is described as being white, of a slim build, about 5ft 8in tall with curly collar-length grey hair.

Isobel was wearing a camel-coloured thigh length coat, brown checked trousers, a white/cream top, black flat shoes and a tan coloured handbag.

Anyone with information about Isobel’s whereabouts is asked to call police on 101.
