Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a pensioner who went missing from Islington yesterday.

Draginja Vuckovic, 85, was last seen at about 11am walking towards City Road.

A Croatian national, she is white, of slim build, around five foot seven inches, with grey curly hair.

She was last seen on CCTV wearing a yellow jacket with dark trousers holding a blue carrier bag and a walking stick.

A spokesman from Scotland Yard said: “She does not speak English, suffers from short term memory loss and is very frail.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 020 8345 0298 or the police non-emergency line on 101.
