Police are searching for a man who left a hospital without receiving the treatment he needed.

Officers are increasingly concerned for the health of 23-year-old David Carlin. On May 12, he was involved in a crash but he walked out of the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham before he had been seen by doctors.

Mr Carlin - who lives in Ilkeston - may have travelled to Lincolnshire as he has worked in Cleethorpes, Skegness and Lincoln.

Officers are asking him to call them on 101, and they want to assure him that he is not in any sort of trouble with the police.

Acquitted Caller 'hasn't got a nasty bone in her body'

The sister of a woman acquitted of assisting in the suicide of her friend said "she hasn't got a nasty bone in her body".

Milly Caller, aged 22, was found not guilty by a jury at Lincoln Crown Court of playing a role in the death of her friend Emma Crossman.

Caller did not show any emotion as the jury foreman read out the verdict.

She stood in the glass-fronted dock flanked by a security guard in a leather jacket and black trousers.

Her family and friends were in tears in the public gallery and, after Caller was released from the dock, she was embraced by her supporters in the court.

Outside, her family said she should never have been put in this position.

Her sister, Fiona, said:

She hasn't got a nasty bone in her body. She's the nicest person you would ever meet.

She doesn't deserve any of this.

– Fiona, Milly Caller's sister

The jury came back with the verdict just moments after they had been given a majority direction by the judge.

They had been deliberating for about four-and-a-half hours.

A woman has been cleared of assisting in the suicide of her friend.

Milly Caller, aged 22, was acquitted at Lincoln Crown Court of playing a role in the death of her friend Emma Crossman, who was found dead in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, in January last year.

Caller was alleged by the prosecution to have been "obsessed and infatuated" by Miss Crossman, 21, at the time of her death.

The jury found Caller not guilty at Lincoln Crown Court after hearing six days of evidence, including testimony from Caller, who said she did not think her friend would take her own life.
