Ann-Marie O’Neill is believed to have left her home address on Birkdale Drive at around 8am on Monday,  May 1 and has not been seen or heard from since.

It is possible she may have travelled to Blackpool.

“She is also in need of medication which she does not have in her possession, so we need to trace her as soon as possible.
