A body has been found by police searching for a 55-year-old Grantham woman reported missing earlier today.

Police are unable to confirm the identity of the person at this time but say they are not treating the death as suspicious.

Earlier today Lincolnshire Police released an appeal for help finding Alexandra Dryburgh who went missing from her home in Belton Grove yesterday.


Alexandra Dryburgh, 55, left her home in Belton Grove, Grantham, at around midday yesterday after saying she was going for a walk.

Police say this type of behaviour is extremely out of character for Mrs Dryburgh and they and her family are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety.

Mrs Dryburgh is described as white, around 5ft 1in tall and of medium build. She has hazel eyes and shoulder-length blonde/grey hair.

She was last seen wearing a green v-neck sweater and dark grey jeans with a short double-breasted black coat.

She is known to like walking in Queen Elizabeth Park, off Belton Lane in Grantham and could be in that area.

Police are appealing for her to go to her nearest police station or to call the police on 101 or 999 as soon as possible to let people know she is safe and well.

Officers are also asking anyone who sees her to get in touch with them as soon as possible via the 101 number.
