A 'VULNERABLE' Lyme Regis woman has been missing from her home since Tuesday - sparking a land and sea search.

Family members and police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of 65-year-old Julianna Gregory, who was reported missing to Dorset Police by her husband at 11.14am, October 7.

Officers, a police helicopter, coastguards and the RNLI have been carrying out searches in the area.

Mrs Gregory left home without any money, medication or her mobile phone. She took a bus pass, but left her car.

Her husband said the first he knew about his wife going missing was when he got up and found a note saying she had gone out.

A Dorset police spokesman said: "We and the woman's family are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare because the disappearance is totally out of character - and the fact she left home without taking her medication.

"Anyone who sees Mrs Gregory, or who has information about her whereabouts since she went missing, should call Dorset Police in confidence immediately.

"We are interested in any information, no matter how unimportant or irrelevant people may believe it to be. All calls will be treated with the strictest confidence."

Officers have been searching areas that Mrs Gregory, a keen walker, has been known to visit - around the golf course to the east of Lyme Regis and the coastal path towards Seaton.

The last sighting of Mrs Gregory was around 9am Tuesday, in the Fairfield Park area in Lyme Regis where she was seen by a male resident.

She is described as white, of slim build, five feet four inches tall, and with short fair hair, grey at the sides.

Anyone who sees Julianna Gregory should contact Dorset Police in confidence by dialling 999, while anyone with information about her whereabouts since she went missing should call 01305 222 222.
