She took her back to her house to look after her but the woman left before the police were contacted.

She was described as described as Asian, aged 20 to 30, with long straight dark hair in a ponytail. She was wearing a long traditional dress, which was light-coloured with patterns on the front and hem, a dark-coloured cardigan, leggings, and possibly a headscarf.

She was last seen at about 7pm walking along Upland Crescent towards Rossington Road.

The circumstances in which the caller found this woman raise some serious concerns for her welfare and we urgently need to identify her and check that she is okay.

We would like to hear from anyone who recognises her or who has any information that could assist us in tracing her.”
