A land and sea search has been started by police to find a missing 77-year-old woman from East Yorkshire.

Marlene Wagstaff was last seen when she left her home on Withernsea Road on Friday.

A Humberside Police spokeswoman said officers were concerned for Ms Wagstaff's welfare due to her age.

Officers, the police helicopter and the coastguard have been conducting searches of the area since Saturday.

Ms Wagstaff was last seen wearing a yellow coloured three-quarter length mackintosh jacket and a blue flowered skirt.
