POLICE in Leeds are continuing to appeal for information to help trace a woman who has gone missing and requires urgent medical attention.

Bethany Topley, aged 19, was last seen outside St James’s Hospital, on Beckett Street, at about 11pm last night.

She is described as about 5' 3" tall, of small build and with multi-coloured dyed hair. She was wearing a grey hooded top and dark jeans.

Detective Inspector Guy Shackleton, of Leeds District CID, said: “Bethany was on her way to the hospital’s A&E department at the time she went missing and we have serious concerns for her welfare the longer she goes without medical attention.

“We would like to hear urgently from anyone who has seen her or who has any information that could help to find her.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101, quoting log number 1853 of March 1, or online via www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat.
