Renewed appeal to help find missing woman Denise Jarvis who was last seen in Kingswood

Police are renewing an appeal for information to help find missing 43-year-old woman Denise Jarvis who was last seen in the Southey Park area of Kingswood on Wednesday 3rd August.

Det Insp Ben Lavender said: “It’s been more than three months since anyone last saw or heard from Denise, which is of great concern.

“A missing person investigation is continuing and we’re carrying out a full review of all the actions and enquiries which have taken place since August, to ensure no stone is left unturned in our efforts to find Denise.

“Within the past few days we’ve carried out further expert-led co-ordinated searches in the South Gloucestershire area, and more searches are planned.

“Denise is described as white, she has long blonde hair and was last seen wearing a navy floral dress, a green sleeveless puffer-style jacket and white shoes. Denise also has links with Reading and Stourport, and has an interest in narrowboats.”

Police are also making a direct appeal to Denise to get in touch: “Your family are very worried about you and only want to know that you’re safe. Please get in touch with us, or with one of your loved ones, as soon as you can, so we can get you any support or help you need.”

If you know where Denise is, call 999 quoting reference 5222186376, or 101 with any other information.

Police have also launched an online portal featuring the appeal, which will allow people to send information direct to officers working on the investigation. You can access the portal at
