Detectives searching for a missing 62-year-old woman have today, Monday, 31 November released CCTV footage of the last moments she was seen, a week on from her disappearance

Irena Wawszczak, 62, lives in Poland but had come over to the UK to visit her son who lives in Northampton.

On Monday, 24 October, Irena was returning to Poland from Northampton on a Sinbad coach, which stopped for a break at the London Gateway service station in Mill Hill at about 14:00hrs.

Irena left the coach at the services but she did not return, and the coach left without her.

She was seen in the NW7 area at about 17:00hrs on Monday, 24 October. Irena was seen climbing across woodland and spoke to a boy that works on a nearby farm. She spoke to him in Polish and asked him where the bus station was.

Irena is a white female, of slim build, with short black hair and black glasses. She speaks very little English.

She was last seen wearing a dark coloured coat with a purple/pink fleece lining which is quite distinctive. She was also carrying a cream style bag with short handles.

Irena only had £50 in cash on her, with no further access to finance, and she has no working mobile phone or travel card.

Officers are increasingly concerned for her well-being and would urge anyone with information on her whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000.
