Sgt Chris Quinlan said: "This is out of character for Beatrice as she regularly walks around Maidenhead however is normally home by 16.30 GMT.

"She did not attend fitness classes at Magnet Leisure Centre on Monday and at the United Reform Church, where she usually goes on Tuesdays, so we are concerned for her welfare."
