Dorota and (right) the clothes she was last seen in

Officers are very concerned for the welfare of Dorota Kuras who was last seen on Tuesday 30 January.

She was dropped off at Witley Railway station at around 10:00 GMT that day and was expected to catch a train to either Guildford or London, but has not been seen since.

Dorota, 37, is described as white, 5ft 7in, skinny with medium blonde shoulder length hair and glasses.

She speaks with a slight Polish accent. The photograph of her wearing a hat is believed to show the clothes she was wearing when she went missing.

She is known to have links to Acton in London, as well as the Godalming and Guildford areas.

There is also suggestion she may have travelled to Tunbridge Wells or the Sussex coast.

#GetsMyVote: 'Higher hospital car park charges'

Hamish Mureddu-Reid

BBC News Online, South East

We're asking people across the country to tell us what #GetsMyVote as the general election on 8 June draws closer.  

Royston Lucas
BBC

Royston Lucas, 64, used to work in the former Pembury Hospital, in Tunbridge Wells, as a domestic supervisor and the funding of the NHS is a key issue for him. 

"I'd like to see the government help the NHS a bit more," he said. 

He thinks spending more on nurses is very important. 

"We should claw back money from people from Europe who use the NHS. They should pay the first £1,000 back. We don't get that back." 

Mr Lucas, who also lives in Tunbridge Wells, is now semi-retired but still works part time "to keep the wolf from the door". 

He said he was happy for hospital car park charges to be raised "by a couple of quid", but that should go directly to the hospital to fund new equipment.
