Missing Manchester woman may be alive

Police release new photos of Isabella Skelton

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are continuing the case of a missing woman that dates back more than 50 years.

Isabella Skelton, nee McDowall- who also goes by Izzy has not been seen or heard from since June, 1969.

She was 35 when she disappeared from her home on Lidiard Street in Crumpsall, Manchester.

Local police believe Skelton, who would now be 86 is still alive.

Detective Inspector Claire Moss says “We owe it to Isabella’s family not to stop looking for her.”

“We hope that someone may recognise the image we have released,” says Moss.

The new photo shows how Skelton may look today.

A spokeswoman for GMP Police said they’ve exhausted all lines of enquiry and can now give more information after Skelton’s family unveiled their own press release last Christmas.

The hope is that the new photograph may help shed some light into a puzzling disappearance.

Skelton was born in Glasgow, married in 1952 with three kids.

In the early 60s she arrived in Manchester, living in Salford initially and later Crumpsall.

According to police she previously worked at Atlas Express in Blackfriars, Salford and possibly with Gallagher Cigarettes as well.

She may have worked for Ball Bearings Services when she disappeared. (JSL)
