Police on Friday were still searching for a 64-year-old British tourist who went missing on Wednesday at the village of Omodos, in the Limassol district.

She and her husband were part of a tourist group that came to the village for a tour.

Limassol police spokesman Ioannis Soteriades told the Cyprus Mail that the search resumed first thing on Friday, this time including the area around Kourion, on the Episkopi Bay, where the woman was reportedly sighted on Thursday.

Police received a tip saying that a woman fitting Pidcock’s description visited the British bases fire station at Episkopi holding a map and asking for directions to Omodos.

Police acted on the tip but found no trace of the 64-year-old tourist.

Pidcock is slim, 1.67m tall, with light brown hair. She was last seen wearing a dark blouse, grey shorts and a blue scarf.

According to her husband, Pidcock had disappeared for a couple of days when back in England.
