It is now just over 8 months since Carol Mighall was last seen. She left her house in Rodney Street, Birkenhead and walked to an off licence on Argyle Street and was last sighted at around 4:40pm on 4 January 2021.
Her family is becoming increasingly concerned about her welfare. birkenhead.news spoke to Karen Mighall, who is Carol’s sister, who made an emotional plea for information confirming that Carol is safe and well.
Karen is thankful to those who have helped by informing her of potential sightings via social media. “Every message we’ve had on Facebook, we’ve gone looking in that area. We have been telling people that the police want photographs [of possible sightings of Carol] to confirm that it is actually her, before we go to those areas.”
“We’ve been to Chester, Liverpool, bus stations and train stations – all different places looking for her.”
The last confirmed sighting of Carol was two days after she went missing, Karen told us. “She was caught on a CCTV camera on Borough Road.” But since then, there hasn’t been a single confirmed sighting.
“I’ve been out putting posters up and just keeping my eye out for her.”, Karen said. All of the family are doing their utmost to keep the awareness of Carol’s disappearance in the public’s mind. As well as putting up posters, they have been constantly keeping a high profile on social media – asking for any information about Carol.
If Carol happened to read this article, Karen said she hoped “I just want her to let us know that she’s safe. If she’s not ready to come home, that’s alright. We just want confirmation That she’s fine.”
Karen appealed to Carol to get in touch, “Let us know you’re safe. We all love her. She can come home when she’s ready, if she’s not ready yet, that’s fine.”
Carol Mighall is described as a white 51-year-old female, 5ft 4in tall, of slim build and with a pale complexion. She has brown shoulder-length hair, often worn in a ponytail. When last seen, she was wearing a khaki-coloured parka-style coat with grey fur on the hood, blue jeans and black and white speckled trainers. She was also carrying a black handbag with a shoulder strap.
