I am concerned for Mrs Copson’s welfare and I am keen to locate her as quickly as possible. Mrs Copson has gone missing without taking her medication with her, so it is vital that we find her as soon as possible. She may be in a confused or disoriented state. If anyone has seen Mrs Copson, or knows where she is, they should contact Dorset Police immediately. We know that Mrs Copson has family in the Kent area, so she may use public transport to travel there.
