Known as Nancy, Mrs Jones, who suffers from dementia, recently moved to the area and her family fear the change may have confused her.

We are just trying to stay positive.

She's a really happy, friendly person, always smiling, loves a laugh and a joke. She's always happy to talk to anyone, she just loves company.

– Mark Watterson, grandson

It's thought she could have travelled as far as Liverpool.

Anyone who spots Mrs Jones - who is around 5ft 3in tall with black hair, and was wearing a red coat, black and red hat, and dark trousers - is urged to call police on 101.
