Hannah Davies, from the Bramley area of Leeds, has been missing since last Saturday (30/01).

Police say she was last seen around 10am on Saturday morning - when she left to go into Leeds City Centre - and no one has heard from or seen her since.

Hannah is described as white, 5ft 7ins tall of medium build with long mousey brown hair. She was last seen wearing cream white coloured blouse, black jeans, black trainers, a camel coloured coat and was carrying a brown and purple coloured handbag.

Hannah's absence is causing us great concern due to her age and vulnerabilities and I am appealing to anyone who has heard from Hannah, or seen her since Saturday to come forward.

Extensive enquiries are being made to try and locate Hannah. She is known to have contacts in the Leeds and Bradford areas, however it is possible she may have travelled further afield."

He told colleagues at a meeting of the police panel today that he wishes his successor the very best.

I am simply retiring but I can do so knowing that I have achieved what I have set out to do as Commissioner. Crime has reduced, a fair deal for Lincolnshire is on its way and we continue to deliver performance that is as good as and, in many cases, better than more well-funded police areas. Whoever my successor is, I wish them the very best.
