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.

Can anyone shed some light on the work going on at the old elliots garage site? Someone told me that there is going to be a old folks home built there, then someone else told me that the planning permission for that fell through.
I have searched the council websites for info but they havent come up with much as yet.
If it is going to be a residential home, which company is it for? I can find the name of the building contractors but not the actual company who they are building it for ( if they are building anything at all!)
Any info would be very much appriciated.
Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
I think it would be worth doing.
Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
Has anyone got any updates regarding Tescos. It's gone very quiet. They have done exactly what everyone say they do buy up all the shops and then have the monopoly of the high street and then do nothing. Who is fighting for us at the moment or have we been forgotten. The Bedlington front street looks great at the moment with the new fronts been put on the shops but there are no decent shops now . No real reason to shop apart from food at Tescos which is exactly what they wanted.We are making do with a sub standard Morrisons and Tescos .
