The search for a 77-year-old woman who went missing from her home in the East Riding has entered its fourth day.

Marlene Wagstaff, who has Alzheimer's, was last seen leaving her home on Withernsea Road in Withernsea on Friday.

Humberside police and the coastguard have been searching the area around her home and police divers have trawled ponds and ditches in the area.

Searches have been widened to Hollym and Holmpton in the bid to find her.

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

A police spokeswoman urged members of the public to search in outbuildings and sheds in case she had taken shelter in one of them.
