Ellesmere Port Market team to the rescue

20 December 2019

Eagle eyed staff at Ellesmere Port Market came to the rescue following reports of a missing person. Merseyside Police asked for help on Monday afternoon (16 December), sharing an alert for a confused elderly lady who had previously gone missing earlier in the month and on that occasion she had travelled to Ellesmere Port. She had left a Liverpool hospital at 10am that morning.  

A photo of the missing person was shared with the Ellesmere Port Market team who immediately began a search. Market Supervisor Dave Brown confirmed within a few minutes that they had found the lady and comforted her with a cup of tea until help arrived.

Merseyside Police passed on their thanks for the speedy response. 

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council added her thanks: “The quick actions of our staff meant the lady was found in minutes and received the medical help she needed. We’ve been told Ellesmere Port Market was a place she felt safe. Well done to all involved.” 

Dave Brown confirmed: “The lady told me she visited the market most days. I have checked with her family that she is ok after the activities on Monday.”
