Missing Anita Jackson believed to have been found dead on Swansea wasteland
POLICE believe the body found on wasteland in Swansea is that of missing pensioner Anita Jackson.
The body was found near to St Helen’s Avenue this morning.
A spokesman for South Wales Police said: “Although a formal identification has not yet been made we believe the deceased to be 71-year-old Anita Jackson who was reported missing from the Uplands area of the city on Tuesday, October 1.
“There are believed to be no suspicious circumstances, the next of kin and HM Coroner have been informed.”
Mrs Jackson, from Brynymor Road, Brynmill, was not believed by her family to have a phone or money with her when she vanished.
Her daughter Deborah said last week: “We are continuing to look for you mam.
“Family and friends are getting increasingly concerned and I want to make another plea for you to at least let someone know that you are safe.”
South Wales Police said Mrs Jackson was last seen in Dunvant on Monday morning.
She is known to often visit Gower, including Horton and Rhossili, as she is a keen walker and also enjoys painting.
Search teams have scoured the coastline between Port Eynon and Worm’s Head for the missing pensioner.
Horton and Port Eynon inshore lifeboat, an RAF Sea King helicopter and coastguards were involved.
