Police say it is highly probable that the missing woman “went into the water” in the park.

Gaynor Lord, a mother of three, was last spotted on a Friday afternoon after leaving work early in Norwich city centre.

According to the police, it is highly probable that the missing woman, whose belongings were discovered in a park by the riverside in Norfolk last Friday, has “entered the water”.

A few hours after her last sighting, the 55-year-old’s possessions were found in Wensum Park, approximately 1.5 miles away from her workplace.

Various items belonging to Lord, such as her clothing, mobile phone, glasses, and jewelry, were found at different locations within the park. Her coat was discovered in the River Wensum within the park.

Using an ID found in her bag, the police were able to confirm that the items belonged to Lord. When they visited her home, they realized she had not returned.

Her disappearance is considered “out of character” and Wensum Park has been closed since Saturday.

Police Superintendent Wes Hornigold, the policing commander in Norwich, told ITV: “Gaynor left work early and took a different route home than usual. We are naturally concerned for her well-being as her disappearance is unexpected.”

He added, “Although there is no evidence of any harm to Gaynor, given the location of her belongings and other evidence, there is a strong possibility that she has entered the water.”

The police have been in contact with the National Crime Agency (NCA) regarding specialist underwater dive teams and are seeking assistance from forces with this capability.

Lord was employed as a retail assistant at Bullards Gin, located within the Jarrolds department store in Norwich. Despite her scheduled departure time being 4pm, she finished work at 2.45pm on the Friday in question.

CCTV footage captured her leaving the store on Bedford Street, and the last sighting of her was on London Street as she walked towards Norwich Cathedral.

Her belongings were found in the park at 8.10pm, prompting the declaration of her disappearance.

Lord was wearing a white shirt and a yellow tank top, with a large olive-colored coat and a scarf.

She is described as a 5ft 6in tall white woman with a shoulder-length, blond bob.
