Police are re-appealing for the public’s help to identify and locate a missing woman who walked out of Kettering General Hospital at 6.20pm on Saturday, May 19.

The woman, pictured, was sighted at a Shell Garage in Worksop Road, South Anston, near Sheffield at around 5pm the following day (Sunday, 20 May). Officers believe she may have a connection to Lincolnshire.

We urgently need to identify this woman as we are very concerned for her welfare. “We believe she didn’t give her correct details when she was admitted to Kettering General Hospital so we are reliant on the public’s help to identify her from the attached images, or for the woman herself to get in touch to let us know she is safe and well.
