A search is being carried out for a woman who has not been seen since she left home, possibly while sleepwalking.

Devon and Cornwall Police said 50-year-old Joy Grigg disappeared in the early hours of Wednesday.

The force said her disappearance was "totally out of character". She disappeared after making an exit through a kitchen window.

Sgt Jo Williams said the rural location of Mrs Grigg's home at Tregeare near Launceston had "inherent dangers".

Cornwall Rescue Group is helping officers search the surrounding area.

Mrs Grigg is about 5ft 2in (1.57m) tall, of medium build with light brown hair and is believed to have been wearing a nightdress with possibly a light blue coat and black ankle boots.
