The sister of a 66-year-old woman is pleading with the public to help find her after she went missing during a hospital visit September 24 last.
Lucille Ingram of 671 ‘B’ Field, Sophia went missing on the afternoon of September 24 after she was left alone by her sister at the Georgetown Public Hospital. “I carry her at the hospital, left her there in the waiting area in a wheelchair… I buy something and give her to eat and I went home to return. She registered but did not see the doctor,” her sister Dorothy Malipen told Stabroek News.
She said she became worried when she returned to the institution and did not see her sister there and was told that she had not been seen by a doctor.
Ingram has an ulcerated stomach and it was for that ailment that she had visited the hospital.
Her sister said she reported the matter first to the GPH police outpost and then to the Turkeyen Police Station. She was advised by the Turkeyen police to once again check the GPH outpost but her search for her elder sister has proven futile.
Ingram is not known to wander the streets and was lucid when last seen.
Anyone knowing of her whereabouts can contact the nearest police station or call her sister on telephone number 219-1378.
