    From above link: "A long-term sufferer of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), she has a very distinctive walk."

    It looks like she parked not far from a couple of bridges (Tyne & Millennium) - I don't have good feelings about this

    So much like the Sally Allen story. Parking your car next to quayside in darkness at 5am is never usually a happy ending . Hope she is found soon. This again highlights why it's vital to have more cctv at the quayside area.

    I heard about this over the weekend as it's local for me. I hope it's not going to turn out like Sally Allen.

    I hope not too, but I think it's reasonable to feel it probably will

    Oh wow, this gave me the wrong kind of goosebumps, just like the Sally Allan case. Hope this has a better ending.

    It's almost identical apart from the locations on the quayside are further apart. I live in Newcastle and there's not much on the news about it.

    Is her MS to the point where it is very painful ? I only know a very little about MS but I know some people can have it with very few symptoms but as it advances, it can become painful and difficult to manage every day affairs with.

    I wondered this too. I know a few people with MS and although they have some moments where it's not so bad, a lot of the time it is incredibly painful for them. I can't imagine living in such pain every day.

    Just as we all feared...

    Other than a few bit and pieces on Facebook I've barely seen any mention of Margaret. It doesn't seem as though it's going to have a happy ending though.

    So sorry that we're hear again with a disappearance on the banks of the River Tyne and I'm amazed that there have only been 11 posts on this thread. The contrast with Sally Allen is so stark.

    Do any of the local posters know why this is? Is everyone emotionally worn out after thinking of Sally for so long or is it down to Margaret's family not being as high profile.

    The two cases to me are so similar and, if Margaret has gone into the river, I just hope her family don't have to wait so long to find her body.

    Do you think there is any chance the two could have known each other?

    With Sally Allen it was all over facebook pretty quickly, and was then picked up by the local press.
    Her family were very vocal.

    Im just not seeing that this time. Just a couple of shares on her missing information.

    I dont know if the fact its a little later in the year, and everybody is back in their normal routine and back at work has made any diffrence.

    I'm sure you're right, I find the difference very interesting although I don't think people searching will make any difference to how soon Margaret is found.

    I sort of agree. I think Sally going missing on Xmas day struck a chord. Not that any life is more important than another. Her family were a lot more vocal and the mystery in the early days kept the media interested. Unfortunately I think it's almost obvious what has happened in this case and its now just a focus on finding her.
