The distraught family of Alicja Stawkowski launched an emotional appeal yesterday for information on her whereabouts as police in Cornwall called off their search for the missing Hackney woman .
Stawkowski, 37, who suffers from depression, has been missing since November 5 and was last seen on CCTV leaving a train in Penzance in Cornwall on November 11.
Magaret Stawkowski, Alicja’s mother, said: “My beautiful, talented, and very sick daughter Alicja is missing. Her whereabouts are still unknown.” She appealed directly to her daughter: “My heart cannot find rest while you are gone, everything has lost its colour since you are not here, I miss you, we miss you, and your son, sister and father are missing you.”
Stowkowski who was born in Poland and whose family currently live in America, have appealed after Devon and Cornwall Police ended their search.
The coastguard and the Devon and Cornwall police searched local streams, a reservoir and the Land’s End area from November 10-20.
The search, which employed helicopters and lifeboats, produced no sightings and concluded last Friday. However, Met Police inquiries continue.
Described as white, with long hair, of slim build, Stawkowski is 1.67 metres (5ft 6ins) and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, black trousers and a black jacket.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Hackney CID: 07795315731, or the charity Missing People: 116 000.
