Police concerned for welfare of missing 83-year-old

Police are searching for missing elderly woman from Maidenhead.

Beatrice Stafford, also known as Mary, was last seen at around 3.46pm on Sunday in King Street, walking to Queen Street.

The 83-year-old got on the 5A Courtney Buses red single decker bus at 3.50pm outside Boots in Maidenhead High Street.

She was seen getting off the bus at about 4.30pm at the junction of Altwood Road and Barnard Road, Maidenhead.

A Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue specialist search team is carrying out search activity in the Shifford Crescent area.

Beatrice is white, five foot to five foot one, of slim build and has short grey wavy hair.

She was last seen wearing a royal blue fleece, black trousers, black trainers which had white soles and was carrying a patterned purple, mauve, white and cream shoulder bag.

Chris Quinlan, investigating officer from Maidenhead Police Station said: “I am concerned for Beatrice’s welfare and would ask anyone who sees her or someone matching her description to contact police as soon as possible.

“This is out of character for Beatrice as she regularly walks around Maidenhead however is normally home by 4.30pm. 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.”

Beatrice was reported missing yesterday.

Anyone with any information about Beatrice’s welfare is asked to contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 444 9/11.
