THE parents of missing student Libby Squire have made an emotional plea to their daughter ‘to get in touch’.
In a video appeal, mum Lisa Squire said: ‘Libby, my darling pie, we just want to know that you are safe. It is breaking my heart not knowing where you are. Please get in touch with us.’
Mrs Squire and her husband Russell issued the statement through Humberside Police as the search for the University of Hull student entered its fourth day.
Mr Squire described his daughter as ‘our kind, thoughtful, beautiful girl’ and appealed for information ‘no matter how small or irrelevant it may be’.
Their appeal came as police said they are ‘exploring all possibilities’ regarding the disappearance. Officers confirmed that Libby, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, took a taxi from outside the Welly Club in Hull last Thursday night for the one-mile journey to her student accommodation.
Chief supt Phil Ward said: ‘We now know Libby arrived around 11.29pm, although it’s not believed she entered the property. On searching the address, we did discover her mobile phone which, despite analysis, has not provided any further insight as to where she may be.’
He said she was in the surrounding area until around 12.09am and stressed that the fact she was missing ‘does not mean she has come to harm’.
Yesterday police scoured a waterway and searched bins and drains near Libby’s accommodation.
But a lip gloss and screwdriver found near where she was last seen are no longer part of the inquiry.
