Patricia Finnie, 64, was last seen on Thursday 11 May when she went to see a friend. She has not been heard from since, something police and her family say is extremely out of character.

My wife Pat, has been missing for three weeks now and I’m deeply concerned for her wellbeing, as are our immediate family and friends, who are worried sick and missing her badly.

Police concerned for her welfare says she is without her blood pressure medication.

Patricia has not been missing before and this is very much out of character.

We are especially concerned as she has not been in touch with anyone and she does not have her blood pressure medication.

We and her family are very concerned for her welfare and ask Patricia to please get in touch with us so that we can know she is okay.

– Detective Inspector Jasmine Frost

She was last seen wearing a full-length quilted black coat with a hood, a pinktop, navy trousers and black shoes. She is described as;

  • 5ft 6ins tall
  • of medium build
  • has straight auburn hair
  • sometimes wears glasses.

See her husband Gordon's full appeal below.

My wife Pat, has been missing for three weeks now and I’m deeply concerned for her wellbeing, as are our immediate family and friends,who are worried sick and missing her badly. Following two previous appeals, many old acquaintances and others have offered support, expressed concern at Pat’s disappearance and are looking out for her.

Our neighbours have been generous in their support, which has made life so much more bearable for us all. “I implore anybody who knows of Pat’s whereabouts, thinks they have seen her recently, or recognise her in passing, to please inform the police immediately.

I’m confident that they will attend to her immediate needs and welfare.

And Pat, if you’re seeing this of your own free will, I’m desperately anxious to know that, at least, you are safe and well.

I urge you to please contact your mother, me, or the police, so that you mayreturn safely to the family and work out any issues that may be troubling you.

Love you, Gordon.

– Gordon Finnie
