POLICE are appealing for information about a 50-year-old Devizes woman who went missing yesterday.

Karen Hooper, who lives in the town, was last seen leaving an address in Devizes shortly before 3pm yesterday.

She was very distressed at the time and has not returned home or contacted her family who are very worried about her.

Karen is white, and said to be about 6ft tall and of large build with dark, shoulder-length hair.

She was last seen wearing dark blue trousers, jacket and brown knee high boots. She had a blue and red patterned handbag.

Karen is known to have links to Bournemouth so Wiltshire and Dorset Police are working closely together to find her.

Anyone who has seen Karen is asked to contact Wiltshire or Dorset Police on 101.
