Husband appeals for safe return of missing GP

The husband of a Nottingham GP who has been missing for five days after battling with depression has launched an urgent appeal for her return.

Dr Elizabeth Kinston disappeared from her home in Beeston last Friday while on maternity leave from Moir Medical Centre, Long Eaton.

Dr Kinston is believed to be suffering post-natal depression following the birth of her second daughter Elise in January.

David Kinston appealed to anyone who may have seen his wife in the Nottingham area and for her get in touch. He said: ‘Lizzie, I miss you, the girls miss you. It’s so hard without you here. We need you.

‘If you want more time, that’s okay. But please call me — or call your mum and dad or your sister, who are all so worried about you too — just so we know you are alright.’

New CCTV pictures show Dr Kinston walking toward Nottingham train station on Friday morning and her Audi was spotted at a petrol station near Priory Island on the A52. The car was found with her purse and mobile phone inside the following day in Broad Marsh car park.

Detective Inspector Kevin Broadhead urged anyone who has seen Dr Kinston to contact them. he added: ‘Our belief that she has little money, no bank cards and no phone with her is of great concern. The cold weather is an added worry.’

    Really unnecessarycomment 6.32; especially from a health professional. If this GPs husband read this following the support Pulse has given the issue he'd feel horrified.

  • I have battled with depression since working for the NHS, having just returned from Australia where I discovered I could enjoy medicine again, being a GP in the UK is tougher than ever and I wish I hadn't come back.
    My thoughts are with her and her family.
