Police search after woman seen in ‘distressed state’ by dog walker

Police are appealing for information on a woman seen in a ‘distressed state’ in Neston.

At 7.30am this morning (February 12), a dog walker was approached by a woman in a distressed state in the Flint Meadow area.

The woman would not stay and walked off while the dog walker called police.

Officers concerned for the welfare of the woman are appealing for help in finding her.

Despite ongoing searches for the woman thought to be in her mid-50s, she has not yet been located and officers are becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare.

She is described as having grey hair and glasses.

She was wearing blue jeans which are mud stained at the bottom, and a black vest top with a thin grey top on with pink edging.

Inspector Julien Culham said: “We are continuing to make enquiries in the area and would urge anyone who comes across the woman to contact us.”

Anyone with information should call police on 999 quoting IML 915909.
