POLICE are concerned for the safety of a missing North Yorkshire woman.

Linda Scaife, 54, has not been seen since 11.30am on Monday, June 16, about an hour after she left Airedale General Hospital.

Detectives believe Linda, who lives in Skipton, may have been in the Bramley area of Leeds earlier that day, but could be anywhere in North Yorkshire now.

Linda is described as white, about 5ft 2in tall, with medium build, blue eyes, a rosy complexion and shoulder-length blonde hair.

When she was last seen, Linda was wearing black trousers, a black coat, black boots and carrying a black and cream handbag.

Anyone who has seen Linda or has information about her whereabouts is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
