Police in Coventry are urgently appealing for the public's help in finding a missing 67-year-old woman with Alzheimer's.

Worried relatives reported Angela Jenkinson missing just after 6.30pm yesterday evening. Her family were alerted to her disappearance when the minibus which usually takes her to a day centre found she was not at her home on Park Court in Allesley. Although relatives spent the day looking for her, they could not find her.

A police investigation was immediately launched, with officers speaking to relatives and neighbours, alerting bus drivers and other police forces as well as checking hospitals and nearby open spaces.
