Surrey Police is appealing for help from members of the public to help locate a 50-year-old woman who has gone missing from the Frimley area.

Rosemary Giles was last seen a week ago on the afternoon of Friday, 15 August. Surrey Police is growing concerned for her welfare and describes her departure and lack of contact with her family as extremely out of character.

She is described as white, 5ft 6” tall and of a medium build. She has long dark straight hair, grey eyes and wears glasses. Rosemary drives a red Renault Megane with the index T340 RCF which is not at her home address.

"No-one has seen or spoken to Rosemary in the past week and we are extremely concerned for her welfare as she has some health issues. Officers are carrying out numerous enquiries to locate her and I am appealing for anyone who has any information or knows the whereabouts of Rosemary to contact police as soon as possible. Similarly, I would ask Rosemary herself to contact us or the Missing People helpline to let us know she is safe and well.”
