A PENSIONER with severe dementia and Alzheimer’s who has gone missing might be in Bolton, police say.

Isobel Byrom, aged 75, was last seen by her neighbours at her home in Loughrigg Avenue, Royton, near Oldham, at about 3pm yesterday.

Her family found she was not at home the following morning, so it is thought she did not stay at her house that night.

Ms Byrom suffers from the dementia and Alzheimer’s, but still uses public transport, particularly buses and trams, to visit Bolton, Bury and other areas.

She is white, slim, about 5ft 8ins tall, with curly collar-length grey hair.

She was wearing a camel-coloured thigh-length coat, brown checked trousers, a white/cream top, black flat shoes and a tan coloured handbag.

Anyone with information can call police on 101.
