POLICE are appealing for help to find a missing woman who is originally from Dunfermline.

Johanna Gray, also know as Jo, was reported missing from Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow, on Thursday.

The 43-year-old now lives in the Yoker area of Glasgow.

She was last seen leaving the hospital around 3.30pm.

Police believe she may still be in the Glasgow area but has also mentioned visiting the Isle of Bute.

Johanna is described as being white, 5ft 3ins tall, average build, with blue eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, white shoes and a light-coloured long-sleeved top. She may also be wearing glasses.

Inspector Gavin Smith, from Partick Police Station, said: "Johanna left hospital unexpectedly on Thursday, April 1, and it’s not clear where she may have gone. She has not returned home and is likely to travel by bus or train.

"As time passes, her family and friends are growing more concerned and we urgently need to find her to make sure she is safe and well.”

Anyone with information should contact police via 101, quoting incident number 2150 of April 1.
