THE mother of missing Lisa Bennett has urged people in Burton to ‘come forward and help in any way they can’.
Janet Bennett was the person alerted police to her daughter being missing last year.
She has now joined forces with them in a bid to find out what happened to the 39-year-old.
The 60-year-old said: “I would like to echo the comments of the police and just urge people in Burton who might know something to get in touch.
“It is not knowing what has happened to her that is the most difficult thing to come to terms with. Nobody deserves this; we just want to know what has happened.
“All Lisa’s family and friends who know her in Burton love her to bits.
“All we want to do is find out what has happened to her.
“I will never, ever forget Lisa but it would just be nice to have some closure and grieve for her.
“People might think what they know means nothing but it could do.
“You don’t have to leave your name; just leave the information so that we can find Lisa.
“Whether you ring the police or Crimestoppers, I do not care.
“All I am bothered about is finding out what happened to her.
“Lisa did not live the perfect life and she had battled drug problems. I half expected a visit from police one day because of her drug addictions, but I never expected this.”
Lisa’s younger sister Lindsey said: “I wish, I want and I hope someone comes forward and lets us know where she is.
“Please, if you know something, just pick up the phone.”
