“We do have a photo, but for her dignity we’re hoping we won’t have to circulate it, so here’s her description instead.

“Around 5 ft tall, short brown hair, wearing a blue jumper over a white shirt, black trousers and blue flat shoes.

“We’ve carried out extensive checks of local nursing homes, and no one knows anything about her.”

Please help and SHARE this and if you know anything about her identity, phone 101 immediately.
