A family is "worried sick" after a 28-year-old went missing after a night out.
Samantha Donkin, known as Sammie, who also uses the surname Smith, is described as being "vulnerable" and was having a difficult time when she went to meet a friend in Gateshead on Friday, June 19.
Her sister, Natalie Stokoe, told Chronicle Live: "She was fine on Friday, she said she was going to see her friend in Gateshead.
"I messaged her about 1.30am saying 'are you coming home?' and she said she was staying out, and she didn't come home the next day.
"Her friend said she got into a taxi at 11.30pm, which went to Morpeth. My sister doesn't know anyone in Morpeth as far as we know, so it doesn't add up.
"We've been ringing and messaging and she hasn't answered, so after 24 hours I reported her missing to the police, who are looking for her.
do any of you possibly have any information or photos about the Nurses House (Nurses Cottage) in Choppington please. I am trying to research its history and am having very little luck. I know that the Kennedys lived here from 1965 and before that was a lady by the name of Isabella Charlton, any help would be greatly received.
A reminder for forum users that the Sixtownships website has been updated for June.
We have updated our archives with letters from soldiers on the front-line during World War One.
The letters make fascinating reading and come from the Bedlington, netherton, barrington, tyneside, choppington, alnwick, west sleekburn and other areas.
For those interested have a good read, you never know you may have family from the past having wrote letters.
Read how the use of gas by the Germans affected our soldiers, how villages were destroyed, acts of bravery, and much more, including the ultimate sacrifice, death.
You will never get a better example of life in the trenches and with it written by those who witnessed it.
No one alive today to tell the story, but these letters tell the story.
100 years next year since it all began and we aim to add more letters to our archives in the future.
If you have any letters you would like to share from loved ones from the war, put them on our forum and we will transfer them to our archives.
The website has again been updated and this time for the 17th of May.

Here is a little from it.
About 8. O' clock the Zeppelin passed over the Choppington district on its way to Bedlington. When first seen it was coming from the coast and seemed to have come up the river. In a few seconds a large crowd ran down near to Mr. McHugh's sale rooms, where the Zeppelin was plainly visible, the noise being like that of a steam thrasher. Just at that point men were seen inside the Zeppelin as it hovered over the Social Club on the opposite side of the road, and proceed in a southerly direction. Immediately afterwards there was a flash, and a crack from a bomb followed by others.
The Zeppelin bombardment is stated to have commenced at 8.12 pm, and to have lasted a very few minutes. The first bomb dropped with a terrific noise just behind the Workmen's Social Club near Choppington Station. The club however suffered no damage, nor was there damage done to any other building or a person injured, though five or six other bombs fell. Three of these fell in Mr. Huntley's field on the Bedlington side, close by. They were incendiary bombs .
These days are children may not see the need to vote!
Democracy may not be good for all, but it is said to be the best of the alternatives.
I cannot imagine a time when we did not have the privilege to vote.
This is a topic that I think demands discussion.
We now feel the politicians can be corrupt.
The local council used to be referred to as Ali Baba and the forty thieves.
Vote for Malcolm Robinson MP for Bedlington
