POLICE have launched a desperate search for a woman with mental health issues who could be sleeping on the streets.

Anna Lewis was last seen at a Hastings food bank on March 17 weeks after she disappeared from her Lewisham home.

The 51-year-old has mental health issues and does not have medication with her. Police believe she is likely sleeping rough and are concerned for her welfare.

Ms Lewis is white and about 5’2” of medium build with short hair. She was last seen wearing a black coat and jeans and may have a large rucksack with her.

Anna knows the Hastings area and may have also been in the Eastbourne area recently.

Anyone who sees her should call the police on 101 or online, quoting serial 828 of 24/03.
