An elderly woman who has been missing from a care home for four days is thought to have been recorded on CCTV walking past a pub.

Jean Jellings, 84, was last seen at Wetherby Manor care home in St James Street, Wetherby, early on Friday morning.

Extensive searches, including the use of the police helicopter, have failed to locate her and concerns are growing for the pensioner, who has never been missing before.

Detectives have now released an image taken from a CCTV camera at the New Inn in Wetherby at about 6.40am on Friday.

It is said to show a female dressed in dark clothing as well as a man in the alleyway adjacent to the car park who police are keen to trace as a potential witness.

Det Insp Mark Swift, from Leeds District CID, said: “The poor quality of the CCTV means we are unable to confirm if the female is Jean Jellings, but we believe it may be given the time, location and the person’s build.

“We’ve released the image as we are keen to hear from the man, who was in the alleyway next to the car park and could be a vital witness.

“At that time on Friday morning the area will have been quiet and I would ask that man to come forward. If you are the woman featured in the CCTV I would also ask you to contact police so this line of enquiry can be exhausted.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds CID based at Elland Road police station via 101.
