Mrs Howell, who is described as a size 12 to 14, was thought to be wearing black trousers, a black high-neck sweater, and a light coloured coat. She was carrying a walking stick and an Asda bag.<SNIPPED>

Oh dear, I hope she is okay; maybe she fell and is waiting for help? Does she have a phone with her?Just my opinion, of course.

The cemetery, the river....it doesn't sound good does it. Prayers for her.
(And here's how the BBC article would look in Welsh, if anyone's curious - or a Welsh speaker)

Last seen leaving her car with her bag and her walking stick. Isn't an ASDA bag like a reusable grocery bag that we use here (to stop using plastic bags)? hmmm
Who saw her at the cemetery? Is her car still there?
The cemetary is very close to the river. I mapped below.
Some photos of the church can be found here. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/23777814

So....she was last seen leaving her car in the cemetery, a statement I took to mean, the car was recovered at that time. Not so, latest from BBC.....
Specialist teams searching for a 72-year-old woman missing since Friday morning have located her car.
Pat Howell's blue Vauxhall was found by police parked on the B5106 in Dolgarrog, Conwy, and search teams are concentrating efforts on that area.

Body thought to be missing Conwy woman Pat Howell, 72
Police believe a body found in the Conwy Valley is that of missing 72-year-old pensioner Pat Howell.
Mrs Howell, of Mochdre, Colwyn Bay, had not been seen since Friday and a body was discovered on Monday.
North Wales Police said her family had been informed, and a formal identification was expected to take place on Wednesday.
Mrs Howell's car was left near Caerhun cemetery near Dolgarrog. It is thought she could have slipped from a footpath. She was last seen leaving the car carrying a bag and walking stick.
The body was found in a steep wooded area above Dolgarrog. Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team, the North Wales Police helicopter, search dogs and coastguards had been looking for the pensioner.
Police do not believe the death was suspicious.The purity of a person's heart can be quickly
measured by how they regard animals.Anonymous
