Missing Surrey woman could be in Brighton
3:59pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
Surrey Police is concerned for the welfare of a 21-year-old woman from Ashtead who has been reported missing.
Emily Burnett absconded from Epsom General Hospital at 5.50pm yesterday with another woman who has since returned.
Miss Burnett was receiving treatment having previously been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
Miss Burnett is described as a white, around 5' 1" of slim build, with shoulder-length, straight blonde hair. She was wearing a brown striped jumper with a picture of a skull on it, black trousers, black canvas shoes and yellowish plastic rimmed rectangular glasses when last seen.
The last confirmed sighting of Miss Burnett was in the Clapham Junction area yesterday evening.
She is known to have links to the Devon and Brighton areas and officers are keeping an open mind that she could have travelled to one of these areas or elsewhere.
Detective Sergeant Antony Preston, of Surrey Police's Missing Persons Unit, said:"We are concerned for the welfare of Miss Burnett and are seeking the public's help in our efforts to locate her. She is not believed to pose any threat to the wider public but it is imperative that she is found and able to continue her treatment.
"I would urge anyone who has seen a woman matching Miss Burnett's description to call Surrey Police immediately on 101, quoting reference M/13/800. Similarly, if Miss Burnett sees or hears this appeal, I would urge her to make contact either by calling 101 or coming in to a police station."
