Missing Peterborough Mum - Two Weeks On
26 August 2011, 12:52
40 police officers are trawling through thousands of hours of CCTV footage as efforts to find missing Peterborough mum Vitalija Baliutaviciene continue.
The 29 year old [pictured - right], who is from Lithuania and has a ten year old son, was last seen leaving her home on Bulmer Road at 5:10am on Friday the 12th of August.
Two weeks on, efforts to trace her continue.
Detective Inspector Martin Brunning said: "I would urge people to think back to what they were doing two weeks ago, around the time Vitalija disappeared.
With her blonde hair, Vitalija would have been quite distinctive and I'm sure people would remember if they saw her walking to work at such an early hour.
I'm convinced that someone in Peterborough will have that vital piece of information which could help us to find Vitalija.
Any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, could be crucial to the inquiry."
Meanwhile, the headteacher of the school that Vitalija's son attends has appealed for the public's help in tracing her.
Iain Erskine, from Fulbridge School, said: "Vitalija's son joined us for the last few weeks of the summer term.
He's a nice boy and was settling in well.
While I have not spoken to him since his mother went missing, I'm sure he must be very worried about her.
He is a young boy, in a foreign country with most of his relatives hundreds of miles away.
He must be feeling very lonely and missing his mum terribly.
If you know where Vitalija is, please tell the police so he can be reunited with her."
Anyone with any information should call Detective Inspector Martin Brunning on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
