Police, who are trying to find a missing woman from Staffordshire who needs medication, say she might have been intending to visit the Watchet area.

Officers are looking for 34-year-old Ria Adams, from Wynyates in Tamworth, who was last seen leaving her home on Thursday 29th May.

Police have established that she caught the 10.47am train that day from Tamworth Station after buying a ticket to London Euston, and it is believed she would have needed to change trains at Birmingham. 

Ria is described as white, 5ft 9, and with a large build, who has short red streaked hair, and was last seen wearing navy jogging bottoms, dark coloured trainers and a navy and white jacket in the style of an American school football jacket.

The jacket has a navy body with white sleeves, white around the waist, blue and white strips on the cuffs, and a white letter 'R' on the left chest. 

She was carrying a lilac/pink sports bag and may have other clothing with her.

Police say Ria also has a number of tattoos, including a frog on a lily pad on her shoulder and her name in hieroglyphics on her arm. 

She is also known as Mya Annayes and Ria Mya Adams. 

Chief Inspector Donna Gibbs, Tamworth Local Policing Team Commander, said: 

"As time passes we're are growing increasingly concerned for Ria's safety as it is believed she doesn't have access to essential medication.

"Our inquiries to locate Ria are ongoing and we're working with colleagues from British Transport Police, West Midlands Police, Metropolitan Police Service, City of London Police and Avon and Somerset Constabulary to locate her." 

Anyone with information is being asked to call 101 and ask for Staffordshire Police, quoting incident number 230 of 29th May.
