Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of a woman who is missing from hospital in Chesterfield.
Sheila Tilstone, 53, was last seen by staff on the Hartington Wing at Chesterfield Royal Hospital yesterday morning.
She has difficulty communicating and there have been no reported sightings of her since she left.
She may still be in the Chesterfield area or could have travelled to Nottingham where she has relatives.
She is 5ft 1in tall and has mousey brown shoulder length hair and was wearing a grey cardigan over a light coloured long sleeved top, black leggings and black ankle boots with a fur trim.
Anyone who has seen Mrs Tilstone should contact police on 101.
