Officers are keeping an open mind as to the whereabouts of Emily Burnett since she went missing yesterday (Weds).
SURREY police are concerned for the welfare of a missing 21-year-old woman from Ashtead who has links to Devon.
Emily Burnett went missing from Epsom General Hospital at 5.50pm yesterday (Weds) with another woman who has since returned.
Miss Burnett is described as a white woman, around 5ft 1ins tall, 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.”
