Have you seen Shirley? Credit: Humberside Police

Police say they are very concerned about a 72-year-old woman who disappeared from her home in Hornsea yesterday afternoon.

Shirley Sowden was last seen in Rolston Road at 4pm yesterday when she left the house telling her son she had an errand to run. She was driving a blue/purple Nissan Micra, registration Y407 JNW.

She is 5ft 6ins tall, medium build, with grey hair and spectacles. When last seen she was wearing a pale green jacket or sweatshirt.

"There is concern for Mrs Sowden as her disappearance and subsequent lack of contact with family or friends is regarded as highly unusual and out of character. She has been ill in recent days and there is a possibility she may have become poorly while out and may now be incapacitated somewhere and in need of assistance. She has also previously suffered from depression for which she has taken medication."

Police patrols have been searching the area in and around Hornsea for several hours.

Anyone who knows where she is or who thinks they may have seen her or her vehicle since 4pm yesterday, is asked to contact Humberside Police on telephone 101 immediately referring to log 421 of September 3 2015.
