THE SEARCH for a missing woman in the Carmarthenshire area continues into its fifth day.

Dyfed-Powys Police are continuing to search for missing Susan Smith who was last seen in the Carmarthen Bay area on Saturday, February 27.

Susan was last seen at around 1.30pm Saturday, walking in the Carmarthen Bay Holiday Village, Kidwelly area.

A National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter was seen scanning the Carmarthen Bay area today (Mar 4).

Dyfed-Powys Police confirmed that they had drafted in the helicopter to aid with the search for Susan.

A spokesperson said: “I can confirm the NPAS helicopter has been brought in to assist with the continued search for Susan Smith.”

She is known to walk along the beach to St Ishmaels and Ferryside, however police are appealing for anybody who may have seen her prior to get in touch so they can build a picture of Susan’s movements.

An initial search for Susan saw a multi-agency response including RNLI lifeboats, a mountain rescue team, five Coastguard teams, Dyfed-Powys Police and a helicopter.

House to house enquiries are continuing in the area by specialist officers.

Dyfed-Powys Police have also made an appeal to a drone user who is thought to have been in the area around the time Susan was last seen.

Sergeant Jess Jones said: “We have been made aware that someone was flying a drone in the area and we would ask that person to contact police as soon as possible,”

Sergeant Fiona Phillips pleaded with the public to report any sightings of the missing woman in a public plea on March 2.

She said: “The search is continuing today with specialist police officers making house to house enquiries in the Kidwelly, St Ishmaels, Ferryside and surrounding areas. It is important that we build a picture of Susan’s movements after she was last seen on Saturday and I would appeal to anyone who believes they may have seen her to contact police.”

She is described as approximately 5ft2 inches tall, petite with shoulder length blonde hair and believed to be wearing black jeans, a black fleece type jacket and navy and grey walking boots.
