Daughter appeals to missing Bath woman Janet Aplin to get in touch
The daughter of a missing Bath woman has made an appeal for her mother to make contact.
Janet Aplin, 58, went missing on Sunday evening after visiting her own mother at the Avon Court care home in Chippenham.
Her eldest daughter Samantha Meggat, 32, said her mother’s disappearance was completely out of character and the family were keen to hear from her.
The landlady of the Victoria Hotel pub in Millmead Road, Oldfield Park, said: “She’s been away for two nights, it’s cold and she hasn’t got any money, no cash cards or a mobile phone with her.

“We just want to get word around.”
Mrs Meggat said her father, 59-year-old Steven Aplin, had been driving around the local area in search of his wife, and her younger sister Polly Reichelt, 27, had been trying to get people to be on the look out.
Mrs Aplin is well known within Bath having been the landlady at the Victoria Hotel herself for more than 20 years. Before that she and her husband had run Bath’s Liberal Club. Mrs Aplin was also an active member of the parent teacher association at the former South Twerton Junior School for a number of years, and used to volunteer in a number of Bath’s charity shops.
Mrs Meggat said: “This is out of her normal behaviour and we are worried sick.
“We are so, so worried and we just want her to let someone know she is ok.”
Mrs Aplin was last seen at approximately 6.30pm on Sunday at the Avon Court care home.
She was driving a silver Toyota Rav 4, registration YM53 PXJ. She has shoulder-length grey hair and was wearing a blue jumper and a blue quilted jacket.
Anyone who has seen Mrs Aplin or her car, or who knows her whereabouts, is asked to call Bath CID on 101.
