Search continues for missing Valerie Jehan

The search has resumed for 75-year-old Valerie Jehan this morning.
Valerie was last seen getting off the bus at 12:07pm on Friday 3rd March. She had left her home around 35 minutes earlier saying she was going out for a walk.

There have been no further confirmed sightings of Valerie since, despite many calls from islanders.

Throughout the weekend extensive searches of the North Coast have been carried out by all emergency services, as well as help from Jersey Search and Rescue volunteers, the Coastguard, French helicopter, and assistance from a drone and police dogs, however no trace of Valerie has yet been found.

Relevant enquiries continue to suggest that Valerie’s mobile phone is still within the area of the North Coast.

Chief Inspector Chris Beechey said: “With no further confirmed sightings of Valerie we believe she may have got into difficulties in the area of Devil’s Hole.

“Much of the area has been extensively searched by many agencies but as yet we have found no trace of her, however the search continues today.

“That said with the weather, the terrain and her age we are increasingly concerned for her welfare and sadly believe the chances of finding her alive are becoming slimmer all the time.

“We however, continue to search and support the family during this horrific time.

“I would once again like to appeal to anyone who was in the area of Devil’s Hole on Friday lunchtime or afternoon to call us on 612612 with any information you have. Anything could help us so please get in touch, this includes negative sightings as well.”
