A mum of eight children, Debra Cull, 55, has not been seen or heard of since she went missing on the morning of Friday, 4th September. Although from Stockport, Debra has links in the Fylde area – hence this appeal. Police say her family are most distressed as this is completely out of character for Debra – consequently they are increasingly concerned about their mum’s welfare.   She usually has regular contact with her eight children – but they have not heard from her.

At 10.20 a.m. on Friday 4th September Debra was pictured on CCTV near to Cohens Chemist in Stockport. She was last seen wearing a grey cardigan, a pink jumper and blue jeans. She is white with shoulder-length blonde hair and a slim build.

Her husband Matthew, 53, is appealing to anyone with any information about Debra’s whereabouts to come forward. Matthew said, ‘I just want to know my wife is safe and comes back home. This is entirely out of character and we are missing her.’ Her daughter Emily added, ‘We just want her to come home, we all miss her.’

Police say they are extremely concerned for Debra’s welfare and are asking the public to report any possible sightings of her.

Detective Chief Inspector Gina Brennand, of GMP’s Stockport division, said: ‘This is a very worrying time for Debra’s family and we are urging anyone with information that could help lead us to finding her to get in touch. If the images we have released of Debra strike any resemblance to someone you may have seen in the last seven days, do not hesitate to call police as it may prove to be the vital detail that we need in our search.’

Anyone with information should call 0161 856 9223. Details can anonymously be passed to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
