The police have said concerns are growing about the safety of a student nurse who was last seen leaving Bristol’s Southmead Hospital 11 days ago.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary has today issued CCTV images showing the last confirmed sighting of missing Bristol woman Anna Lewis.
“Her disappearance is out of character and we’re growing concerned for her welfare”
The police said it had now established that Ms Lewis, 27, who lives in the Fishponds area of the city, was last seen leaving Southmead Hospital at 12.15pm on Thursday 13 April.
Ms Lewis is described by the police as a “trainee nurse” studying at the University of the West of England, who was working at the hospital on placement.
Her disappearance was said to be “out of character” and, in a statement appealing for information from the public, the police they were “growing concerned for her welfare”.
Detective sergeant Nicholas Lawson, from Bristol Investigations, said: “Anna has been known to go on camping trips without telling others, but never for this amount of time.
“We’re liaising with other police forces as part of our continuing enquiries,” he said.
“Anna is described as white, 5ft 5ins to 5ft 6ins, of slim build, with brown eyes and long dark brown hair, which she tends to wear in a low ponytail,” said DS Lawson.
He added: “The clothing she tends to wear includes jeans or walking trousers, hiking boots, and loose jumpers.”
North Bristol NHS Trust, which runs Southmead Hospitals, said it was “supporting a police inquiry to appeal for the whereabouts of missing student nurse Anna Lewis”.
“We urge anyone who has any information about Anna to contact the police,” said the trust in a short statement.
