|Appeal to Help Find Missing Fulham Woman|
Hannah MacDonald has not been seen since Tuesday 6th March
Police are appealing for help in tracing a missing woman from Fulham.
Hannah MacDonald, 31, has been missing since Tuesday 6th March when she was expected to return to a Mental Health Unit at Charing Cross Hospital.
Hannah was apparently diagnosed as having a condition known as "fugue" which causes her to suffer from temporary amnesia, which can be severe, along with several bouts of severe depression.
Dissociative fugue usually involves unplanned travel or wandering, and is sometimes accompanied by the establishment of a new identity.
Hannah was last seen being dropped off near her home in Fulham.
She occasionally uses her sister's name - Miriam. There are likely places Hannah would frequent, including the Cassel Hospital, Ham Common, and Hampton Court Palace. Hannah has previously travelled by train to Scotland, and she may visit Cheltenham in order to associate with close friends. Hannah is white, 5ft 8 tall, and of slim build.
Anyone who may have seen her, or knows of her whereabouts, is asked to contact DC Corrado Di Mascio of Hammersmith Police on 020 8246 2505 (quoting reference 12.MIS.007294); or call Missing People on 0500 700 700.
