Police are concerned for the welfare of a 49-year-old woman who went missing from Cumbria and is believed to have caught a train to Preston.
Mandy McLellan was last seen at her home address in Irthington on Thursday at around 10pm.
She is described as a white female, 5ft 5in tall, of slim build, with collar-length dyed blond curly hair.
Officers say that due to medical issues she may not be able to effectively verbally communicate, and instead may write messages down where necessary.
They have ussed an appeal to anyone who has seen her to call Cumbria Police on 101.
Police also urge Mrs McLellan if she sees this appeal to let police know she is safe and well.
