Sheila Finneran was reported missing on Monday, June 26, after she was last seen walking near Whyke Lane at around 11am on Saturday, June 24, police said.

Police said the 76-year-old, who lives in Wiltshire, had been staying with relatives when she went missing.

She hasn’t returned home to Salisbury or to her relatives in Cleveland Road, Chichester.

Detective Constable Graham Milner said: “Sheila is white and 5ft 10in. She has distinctive straight shoulder length bright orange hair. She also slurs her speech.

“Sheila takes medication daily so it is of concern that she has now been missing for three days without accessing her medicine.”

Anyone who has seen her is asked to contact police online or 999 if an emergency quoting serial 663 of 26/06.
