Police are trying to find a woman who has gone missing.

Modelene Wobidike, 39, was last seen in St Albans city centre at 3.50pm on Saturday, August 22.

She is described as black, of medium build and 5ft 2in tall. She has links to Watford.

Modelene was last seen wearing a black dress. She often wears a headscarf, and ornate jewellery such as bangles and rings.

Officers are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Jenny Brown, manager of Hertfordshire Constabulary's Locate team, said: “We have made extensive enquiries in order to locate Modelene but so far these have proved unsuccessful.

“Modelene is vulnerable and lives a transient lifestyle, meaning she has links to Watford, south London, central London and the West End, as well as Horley and Reigate in Surrey.

“We are doing all we can to trace her so we can ensure she is safe and well. Please get in touch if you have any information.”

Anyone who believes they are with Modelene now or have seen her in the last few moments, call 999 immediately quoting reference 473 of 22 August.

Anyone who has seen Modelene since she was reported missing or has information about where she may have been, call Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency line on 101.
