THE family of a woman who has been missing for three weeks has thanked social media for their “overwhelming” support in trying to find her and urged them to continue their efforts.

Eve Cullen, 52, has not been seen since Thursday, July 17, when she was sighted at her home address in Hollywood, near Redditch, and police are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Appeals from West Mercia Police to find Mrs Cullen have been shared more than 900 times on Facebook and retweeted more than 200 times on Twitter. Officers would like to join the family in thanking people for their help in sharing these appeals, while also urging them to continue to support the ongoing police operation to find Eve, a mother of three.

One of her daughters, Laura Cullen, aged 20, said: “I would like to thank every single person that has helped us. The support over Facebook and Twitter has been really overwhelming and really nice, so let’s all continue to work together and help find my mum.

“Mum, please get in touch with us so we know how you are doing and that you are safe.”

Mr Cullen, who also has 15-year-old twins, is described as 5ft 9ins tall, of medium build with brown collar length hair and glasses. When she was last seen she was wearing a mustard t-shirt, green three quarter length trousers and white trainers.

Detective Inspector Jill Fowler said: “We continue to appeal for anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Eve, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, to contact police.

“There is no evidence to suggest that Eve has come to any harm, but we would like to see her to ensure she is safe and well.

"Eve, we would urge you to make contact with police by phoning the non-emergency number 101.”

Officers are also asking people to report any sightings of a woman matching Mrs Cullen's description to West Mercia Police by phoning 101.
