UPDATE: Body found in search for missing Christchurch woman Judith Kelly

POLICE are appealing for information as they look to trace missing Christchurch woman, Judith Kelly.

The 55-year-old was reported missing at 6.45pm on Saturday (October 21) and following CCTV enquiries, officers have shared images of her walking along the A337 in Highcliffe close to the Premier Inn and the Tesco Express at 10.13am that day.

She is described as 5ft 10inches tall, of medium build and with dark hair in a bob. She is wearing dark blue walking trousers, a dark blue or teal waterproof Rab jacket with a hood and a distinctive orange zip and grey Peter Storm walking shoes with purple highlights.

Chief Inspector Derek McKerl, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to do everything we can in an effort to locate Judith. The images we have been able to obtain show her wearing a hat and carrying a bag. However, we do know that she no longer has these two items in her possession.

“It is reported that Judith has a keen interest in walking outdoors and enjoys birdwatching. She has been known to visit the rural and coastline areas of Christchurch, so we would ask any members of the public who come across a woman matching her description in these areas to please come forward and assist with our enquiries.

“I would ask Judith that if you see this appeal to please let us or your family know that you are all right. We are all very worried for you and want to make sure you are safe and well.”

Anyone who has seen Judith, or has knowledge as to her whereabouts, should contact Dorset Police via or by calling 101, quoting incident number 21:472.
