An elderly woman with dementia who went missing from her home in Donington this morning has been found safe in the village.

Elsie Sills (89) was reported missing from her home in Northorpe Road at about 8.45am and police put out an appeal for her whereabouts.

Concerns were raised when Elsie’s mobility scooter was found outside the house and police raised the possibility that she may have gone missing yesterday night.

But a Lincolnshire Police spokesman said Elsie appeared to be safe and well when she was found near her home, although she had fallen over and paramedics were assessing her condition.
