York police are appealing for the public’s help to locate a missing woman from the city.

Sheila Sykes, 73, (pictured right) has not been seen since leaving her home address in Dunnington at 8pm on Friday 1 March 2013.

She is described as being white, 5ft 3in tall, with a medium build and short dyed blonde hair. When she was last seen Sheila was wearing a white and black checked hooded coat, black trousers and black patent leather shoes.

Although it is not known where she is, Sheila has links in the Humberside area. She also has access to a bus pass and it is possible she may be using public transport.

Officers are growing increasingly concerned for Sheila’s welfare as this disappearance is out of character.

Police Sergeant Carol Horner, of Clifton Moor Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Sheila, if you see or hear this appeal please get in touch with your family, who are very concerned about you, or the police straight away so that we can confirm you are safe and well.

“If anyone sees Sheila I urge them to contact the police straight away.”

Anyone who can help to locate Sheila Sykes is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass the information to the Force Control Room.
