“Mrs Akhtar’s is a loving mother and her children are missing very much. They and her husband desperately want to know that she is safe and long for her to come home.”
The images, captured on CCTV at Lloyds TSB bank on Birchfield Road in Aston, clearly show the 41-year-old mother of six withdrawing cash just before 10am on Thursday 23 December. She has not been seen since.

She is described as Asian, 5’4″ tall and of slim build. She has brown eyes, shoulder length curly black hair and at the time of her disappearance, was last seen wearing a red coat, Asian style trousers, flat cream shoes and black headscarf.
Nasim was also wearing gold earrings, gold necklace and gold bangles. She has both ears and her nose pierced.
Nasim is believed to have distant relatives in Derby, Nottingham and Leicester.
“I would urge Mrs Akhtar or anyone who knows where she is, to contact police urgently. We just want to know that she is safe and well,” said Ch Insp Russell.
