New mum dies hours after going missing from hospital in pyjamas and slippers

A new mum has died just hours after going missing from a hospital.

Amanda Cox disappeared within days of giving birth at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh.

She was last seen wearing black and white patterned pyjama bottoms and slippers.

But the 34-year-old, from Peebles in the Scottish Borders, was found collapsed around 10pm on Monday.

Her death is being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious, reports Edinburgh Live.

Police Scotland said in a statement: "Our thoughts and sympathies are with Amanda’s family and friends at this time."

A police source told The Scotsman: “There was nothing apparent that would suggest this is anything other than the tragic death of a new mother who had recently given birth.

“She was found within the hospital and obviously there will be aspects of the investigation that will look into the seven hours she was unaccounted for until she was found.”
