Detectives have appealed for the public to help them find a "vulnerable" woman who has been missing for three weeks.

Cathryn Holdsworth, 72, of Halifax, was last seen at Calderdale Royal Hospital on Friday 8 September.

She was wearing pink earmuffs and gloves and using a walking frame. Police hope her "distinctive" clothing may jog people's memories.

Insp Toby Facey said: "Cathryn lives with a number of health issues. We are growing more and more concerned."
