A search is underway for a 'vulnerable' woman who police think could be in Cornwall.

Cathryn Holdsworth, 72, was reported as missing from Halifax earlier this week.

Officers say the last confirmed sighting of her was at Calderdale Royal Hospital on Friday, 8th September.

They think CCTV footage also shows her the following day at a Tesco store in Halifax town centre, around 5.20pm.

Neighbours in the Holsworth Road area of Illingworth raised concerns for Cathryn to West Yorkshire Police on Tuesday.

Now officers say they are growing 'increasingly concerned' for her welfare and believe she could be in the Duchy with family.

She also has previous links to the Blackpool area.

It is thought when she was last seen she was wearing distinctive pink earmuffs, a dark-coloured coat, pink gloves and using her walking frame.

She is around 5ft2 and of medium build, with short, speckled grey hair and dark glasses.

Inspector Toby Facey of Calderdale Police said; "We are growing increasingly concerned for Cathryn’s welfare. She has not be seen for around 10 days, which is very out of character.

"Cathryn lives with a number of health issues which make her more vulnerable and we are appealing to anyone who can assist us in locating her to come forward so we can make sure she is OK.

"Anyone who has seen or heard from Cathryn should speak to police.

"I would also appeal directly to Cathryn to contact police to let us know that she is OK. Enquiries are continuing."

Anyone who has seen or heard from Cathryn since 8th September, or who knows where she is now, should contact police via 101, quoting 1520 of 19/09.

Cathryn may also have contacts across Calderdale, West Yorkshire and the UK.

Devon and Cornwall Police have also shared the appeal.
