A woman known to stare at people has gone missing from a Crawley hospital.
A police spokesman said Margaret Rule, 52, went missing from Langley Green Hospital at about 5.15pm on Saturday (January 2).
Surrey PC Ian Matthews said: “We are extremely concerned for Margaret as we don’t believe she will look after herself while she is away from hospital and will not try and look for help if she needs it. As the weather has been extremely wet and windy since she went missing we are concerned she won’t have found shelter.
“She is described as 5ft 4inces tall and skinny, she has long untidy greying brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a purple bobble hat which covered her ears, a brown coat, black trousers and plimsolls. She can be known to stare intensely at people.
“If anyone has seen her in or around the Crawley area or knows where she might be, they are asked to please contact us.”
A police spokesman on Tuesday (January 5) said had not been heard from since she told hospital staff she was going into town to visit the bank.
Margaret, originally from Fareham, Surrey, struggled to look after herself because of her mental health.
