Officers on the Isle of Wight are continuing their search for 22-year-old Rosie Johnson, who went missing from Wootton earlier this week.
Officers are conducting targeted door to door enquiries in the New Road area to speak with local residents, particularly those with boathouses and outhouses. It is hoped that revisiting this area will yield clues as to where the PGL staff member has disappeared to.
It is thought that Rosie was last seen in New Road in a ‘distressed’ state, possibly as a result of an argument, at around 10.15pm on Sunday night. She was reported missing in the early hours of Monday morning by Staff after work pals raised the alarm that he had not returned from going out for a walk.
Questions are still being asked on why it took so long for the search to get underway on Tuesday morning – around 40 hours after she was last sighted – before an appeal was issued mid-afternoon by officers from Hampshire Constabulary
The search was scaled back yesterday following 2 days of intensive searches by Police, WightSAR, Hants SAR and HM Coastguard. The operation has attracted national media attention with the local and wider community asking ‘where is Rosie Johnson?’.
Rosie’s family are being supported at this time having flown down to the Island from Scotland on Tuesday night.
Rosie is said to have mousey brown hair and is of slim build. She was last seen wearing a dark blue puffa jacket and trousers.
Anyone who thinks they might have seen Rosie since she went missing or has any information about where she might be should contact Police on 101, quoting 44190217273.
