“I would ask everyone to look closely at these pictures and think about whether you recognise Norma.

“Did you see her last summer?

“If you think you might have information – even if you aren’t completely sure it was her or don’t remember exact dates – please contact the police.

“No piece of information is too small.”

Ms Girolami regularly travelled to Brent Cross to do her shopping, using public transport to make her way there.

She was also a member at Archway Leisure Centre

Norma’s communication with family and friends stopped that same evening.

Det Ch Insp Jo Sidaway, leading the investigation, said: “Norma’s friends and family faced their first Christmas without her and have had to start a new year still not knowing exactly what has happened.

“We are working tirelessly to get them the answers they so desperately need.

“We are urging anyone who knew Norma or regularly saw her to come forward and speak to us, whether it be a neighbour or someone who works at a shop that she visited frequently.

“Any information about her daily routine could prove vital to our investigation.

"Please contact us with any information – it will be treated in confidence and if you don’t feel comfortable speaking to us then you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
