Police are searching for two people who went missing from two separate Kent hospitals without their medication.

Leeanda New-Hart was last seen at 2.35am on Sunday, August 5, at Medway Maritime Hospital.

The 38-year-old had been at the accident and emergency centre when she walked outside and was seen on CCTV walking across the grounds towards the Windmill Road exit.

She met two men who she appeared to have a conversation with before leaving the grounds with them.

Police are concerned as she needs medication which it is believed she does not have with her.

Ms New-Hart, who is from Maidstone, is white, 5ft 5in tall, medium build, dark short hair and is possibly wearing a multi coloured long sleeveless dress and a multi coloured cardigan.

Police are also concerned for the welfare of a 44-year-old man who went missing from the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford yesterday (Thursday).

Shaun Watson, who was last seen at around 9pm, is 5ft 4in and of a medium to large build with short cropped, thinning brown hair.

He has a pale complexion and he has distinctive green alien head tattoos with a black pattern on both hands. He may have some facial hair.

He was wearing a dark fleece and light coloured jogging bottoms when he went missing. Shaun likes to walk and may head to London.

Inspector Simon Young said police were growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

He said: “Shaun has health issues and he hasn’t taken his medication with him so it is important that we find him as soon as possible.

“Although he went missing from the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford he does have links with Dover, where he is originally from, and Whitstable and Canterbury. I urge anyone who believes they may have seen Shaun to contact us.

Please phone Kent Police immediately on 101 quoting reference number 08/1832 with information about Mr Watson or the Missing People organisation in confidence on 0500 700 700.

If you have any information about Ms New-Hart quote ref CAD 05-0346.
