'We all miss you so much mam, please come home'
THE daughter of a Swansea pensioner who has not been seen since Monday has made an emotional plea for her mam to get in touch.
Anita Jackson's daughter Deborah has contacted The Post to appeal directly to her.
She said: "Everybody is missing you desperately. Please come home."
She appealed to her mother: "Please get back in contact — walk into any shop, cafe or hospital — they will let you make a call and I will come and get you.
"At the very least please let us know you are safe."
She said her 71-year-old mother was behaving out of character and urged people in Swansea, Gower and much further afield to keep an eye out for her.
Mrs Jackson, of Brynymor Road, Brynmill, has been missing since Monday, and her family believes she does not have a phone or money on her.
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 scoured the coastline between Port Eynon and Worm's Head for the missing pensioner on Thursday. Horton and Port Eynon inshore lifeboat, an RAF Sea King helicopter and coastguards were involved.
The search was carried out in what were described as extremely difficult conditions.
Lifeboat helmsman Andy Rogers said: "The sea conditions were choppy and the breaking waves made a search near the shoreline difficult.
"During the search there was also very heavy rain which significantly reduced visibility."
Mrs Jackson is 5ft 4in with a medium build and silver grey curly hair. She was last seen wearing a blue jumper.
Her daughter stressed to her mother that if she has any issues then can be resolved.
"We can sort it out," she said.
Anyone who has seen Mrs Jackson or has any information which may help police should phone 101.
