"She may be in need of urgent medical attention and we need her to contact us as soon as possible."
Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101 as soon as possible.
A West Midlands Ambulance spokesman said: "We can confirm we went to an incident in a park in Stechford this afternoon.
