Hundreds of uniformed officers and around 50 detectives have been working around the clock to try and find University of Hull student Libby.

Three specialist search advisors have been overseeing the search. Nearly a dozen underwater officers, dog teams and support officers from neighbouring forces are assisting with the search.

He appeared in court for separate offences earlier this week as the search for Libby continues.

“Libby is a much loved big sister to her three younger siblings. They all really look up to her and she always expects them to behave.

“Libby has a big heart. She is always happy and having fun. She laughs a lot. She is a real family person, and loves spending time at home with them [her family].”
