Today marks six weeks since Alena Grlakova from Rotherham was last seen. Both officers and her family are becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare and the fact that she has not made contact with her loved ones during that time.
As searches continue, police are also urging people who live in Rotherham to check any outbuildings or disused buildings they own.
Today and over the coming days, searches are focused around Broad Street, Parkgate and the surrounding areas as officers continue to piece together Alena’s movements on Boxing Day 2018, when she was last seen.
The last confirmed sighting officers have of Alena, 38, who was reported missing last month, is on Wednesday 26 December 2018, when she was seen leaving the Travellers Public House on Rawmarsh Hill. Since then, the investigative team have received numerous reports of different sightings and are now focusing on a possible sighting of Alena on Taylors Lane later that evening.
T/Superintendent Iain Chorlton, said: “It’s extremely out of character for Alena to not contact her family and as today marks six weeks since she was last seen, I’d like to stress that my concerns are still there.
“She has missed her brother’s birthday during this time, and hasn’t contacted her family on a regular basis like she usually would. They are all extremely concerned and we need members of the public to come forward with information so that we can find Alena.
“At the moment, we are following up information that Alena may have been near to the Fitzwilliam Arms on Taylors Lane, Parkgate, on Boxing Day evening at around 8pm.
“As we work to confirm this sighting, we are carrying out a thorough search of the area, including outbuildings and disused buildings. I’d like to please ask anyone who lives in that area to do the same and check any that they own. We are looking for signs that Alena was there.
“I’d ask anyone with information to please get in touch with us. You can call the incident room directly on 01709 443540. You can also pass information to 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously quoting incident number 450 of 15 January 2019.
