CONCERN is growing for a woman with Asperger's who has gone missing from hospital.

Nafisah Rahman was receiving treatment for a condition at Gartnavel Royal Hospital when she disappeared on Sunday from the grounds.

She was last seen around 1.25pm on October 1, wearing a purple jacket and purple trousers, black shoes and had a small shopping trolley.

The 29-year-old is described as Asian, 5ft 4in tall, of medium build and with long black hair.

Constable Fraser Ballantyne from Partick Police Station said: “Nafisah has Asperger’s Syndrome and has recently been receiving treatment at the hospital for another condition which requires medication, which she will not have with her.

“She has gone missing before and has travelled to the Dumfries and Edinburgh areas on these occasions.

“I would appeal to anyone with information on Nafisah’s whereabouts to please contact Partick Police Station via 101.”
