Iris Godden of Wellington Street, EN1 was last seen at 11:00hrs on Tuesday 7 August walking out of North Middlesex Hospital, Sterling Way, Enfield, N18.

She had been admitted to hospital after feeling dizzing and fainting. She also has a heart condition amd dementia which has recently increasingly deteriorated.

Iris is described as white, F500 of slim build with short curly white hair. She was wearing a pink cardigan, long blue coat and was carrying a small black handbag.

She frequents Enfield Town and often uses the 192/ 377 bus to get to and from Enfield Town as well as the London Overground from Enfield Town- Bush Hill Park.

Detective Inspector Paul Ridley from North Area CID is appealing for assistance from the public. He said: “We urgently need to locate Iris. She walked out of the hospital in a vulnerable condition and there have been no sightings since. Her family and friends are understandably extremely worried and have been searching the streets in addition to our officers.

The weather conditions are very warm therefore increasing the risk, as she urgently needs fluids and medication. I would urge members of the public to be vigilant and call us immediately with any sightings, she is known to use public transport.”

Officers are increasingly concerned for his wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000 quoting reference: 18MIS031756.
