    Pau's sisters, Victoria and Alice, appealed for help last week, or for Pau to contact them if she can. They are desperately worried.

    Pau lives in an apartment with her dad and just left, apparently. I wonder if she was upset or depressed over anything? Her mum is mentioned too, but I'm not sure if she lives with Pau and her dad.

    Pau loves shopping her sisters say, so may be spotted in a town shopping centre.

    Pau Kim is known as Paukim, or just Kim, according to the Fb page set up for her.

    I am still puzzled over what was happening in those cctv pics.

    I'm in Newcastle and hadn't heard a thing about this! So frustrating. I know that area of Byker reasonably well as I used to live nearby.

    I'd also like to know a bit more about this CCTV pictures. In the middle one it does look like she could be talking to someone and gesturing, and the one on the right hand side looks like she could be in a hurry to get somewhere as she seems to be swinging her arms a lot, almost marching.

    There's not much information out there unfortunately. Would love to know a bit more about what she was up to shortly before she disappeared.

    I was wondering if you'd heard about this case, alreetlike! Nice to see you here.

    Police are checking in case there's any further cctv that might have been on Pau Kim's route.

    The route she walked May 2nd was:

    From Molineux Court
    To Warwick St
    To Stoddart St
    Outside the Tesco Store.

    They are appealing for people to think back to May 2nd and rack their brains in case they saw Pau Kim. They are also appealing directly to Pau Kim to contact them if she can, just to let them know she is okay.

    Call police on 101 with any information.

    From the cctv photos - Pau Kim's hat is quite distinctive, isn't it? It seems to have a big butterfly on the back.

    Anyone who wants to give anonymous information can call Missing People on:

    It is a very distinctive hat, I would hope anyone who'd seen it might remember it but quite a bit of time has passed now so no doubt it will have faded from peoples' memories.

    It would be good to see photos of the curled 4th finger on her right hand too, although perhaps if she was self-conscious of this she didn't allow many photos to be taken. It looks as though she has gloves on in the CCTV photos. I had a look and it was around 12C in Newcastle that day so she looks reasonably dressed.

    Someone has had the unusual but innovative idea of making a poster about Pau Kim to be shared on Lost Dog UK, because she loves dogs and nature.

    It is worrying though, that is says besides that and singing in church, she also likes speaking to strangers sometimes.....

    ETA: Any nice nature areas within reasonable walking distance of Molineux Court, that any locals can think of?

    Heaton Park is less than half a mile north of Molineux Court. There's also Jesmond Dene which is a bit further to the north west but still within walking distance. There isn't really much in terms of nature areas/open space in the area of Stoddart Street, where she was seen on CCTV. That's more heading towards the city centre and is pretty much all built up areas.

    It looks as though she has been found in the River Tyne.

    I think you are right, sadly. I haven't found any media update stating this was definitely Pau Kim, and I'm not sure there ever will be one. But here is the official police notification that they've informed Kim's family:

    https://www.northumbria.police.uk/ne...s.asp?id=95718

    The official UK missing person's site has removed her missing status:
    http://www.missingpeople.org.uk/this...has-moved.html

    And also, on her missing FB page, her funeral arrangements were made in June.

    Rest in peace, Pau Kim Lau

    Thanks for the updates. I hadn't seen anything else in the local news, but I had pretty much assumed it was her.
