Missing Jean is 'very trusting and easily led'

Police say they're growing increasingly concerned for a woman who's gone missing from Lincoln.

Jean Parker got on a train to Newark from Lincoln on Easter Friday and hasn't been seen since. She takes medication but it's not thought she has any with her. Officers describe her as very trusting and easily led.

She is of medium build, 4' 11" tall with short grey hair, blue eyes and usually wearing glasses. Jean normally wears the beige/cream coat she is wearing in the photograph and normally has a black trolley and brown hand bag with her.

We are growing increasingly worried for Jean, if anyone has seen or heard from her since Easter Friday then I'd ask them to call us.

He was jailed for 15 years following a trial. The offences happened between 1986 and 1994 in the Cornwall and Lincoln areas.

We will always pursue offenders no matter how old or how historic the offences are, where we can. Baddiley has not shown any remorse for the offences he has committed.
