Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 79-year-old who lives locally.

Svetlana Rodina, 79, was last seen by a neighbour in Turnpike Lane walking in the direction of the town centre of Sutton on the morning of May 4.

Svetlana is originally from Azerbaijan and speaks no English at all and she is described as frail and has difficulty walking far.

She is described as a white female, five feet four inches tall, of slim build with white hair, and when last seen was believed to be wearing a black coat, black trousers and black leather ankle boots with a double buckle on the side.

Svetlana is known to use bus routes of X26 to Kingston and the 461 from Kingston to East Molesey in Surrey - and known to frequent the areas of Sutton town centre, Kingston and East Molesey in Surrey.

Officers are increasingly concerned for her wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on Svetlana's whereabouts to call police on 101 quoting CAD reference 8145/4MAY19 or Missing People on 116000.
