Police plan to search the coastline for missing woman Carol Smalley by using a drone on Wednesday.

Mrs Smalley, 55, was last seen on Wednesday, January 3 with her clothes and a bag found on a beach at Hopton.

Her disappearance had led to extensive searches at the end of last week.

A police spokesman said a further coastal search is planned for Wednesday and will involve Norfolk Constabulary’s drone.

Mrs Smalley, who is from Lincolnshire, had stayed at a hotel near Hopton. She had holidayed in the area before.

Previous searches involved lifeboat crews and Coastgaurd teams, a Lowland Search and Rescue Team and the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.

Anyone with information on Mrs Smalley’s whereabouts should call police on 101 quoting reference 27.
