A elderly woman went missing yesterday while travelling on a bus to Plaistow with her son.

Eunice Payne, 78, (pictured) was with her 40-year-old son on the 115 from Aldgate to Greengate Street between 6pm and 7.10pm.

Because of the number of people on the bus, Eunice stayed on the lower deck while her son sat on the upper deck.

When he got off the bus at Greengate Street, he noticed his mother was missing

Eunice is described as five-feet tall, of stocky build, and usues a walking stick.

She was wearing a navy blue top, a white cardigan with blue and white swirly patterns, black trousers and black trainers.

Officers are concerned for her safety and welfare because Eunice has dementia and type 2 diabetes.

Anyone with information should contact the missing person unit on 020 7275 5728 and quote reference 12MIS020648.
