A urgent search has been launched in North Wales after a woman vanished while on a country walk with her dog.

Ausra Plungiene took her dog out walking on Tuesday 11 April, but the 56-year-old woman and her pet haven’t been seen since.

She didn’t return home yesterday, prompting a police search of the popular national park.

Police are now urgently looking for the pair and asking the public to remain vigilant and report any sightings.

Reports suggest that a coastguard rescue helicopter was sweeping the area above Eryri this morning.


North Wales Police have shared photos of Ms Plungiene, and of her black fluffy dog.

They said: “Concerns for Ausra Plungiene, 56 yrs, who went walking with her dog in Snowdonia, 11th April and is now missing.
