Concern grows as search for missing Hull student Libby Squire enters third day

The search for missing Libby Squire has entered its third day after scores of police, her friends and fellow Hull University students spent Saturday looking for the 21-year-old in bitingly cold conditions.

Miss Squire disappeared late on Thursday night and police have said they are “extremely concerned” for her welfare.

A family member urged Miss Squire to come home, saying they were “broken without her”, and thanked those who had joined the search.

“She is obviously loved by so many,” they said.

Miss Squire’s family said her disappearance is “very out of character”, adding that she is “a very thoughtful and caring young woman who puts others before herself”.

On Saturday, more than 70 police officers were out making inquiries, including knocking door-to-door around the area where the student vanished, in a bid to attain information.

Miss Squire was reported missing after getting into a taxi outside the Welly Club on Beverley Road, Hull, at around 11pm on Thursday, and is believed to have got out of the vehicle a short while later near her home address on Wellesley Avenue.

Humberside Police said that she was then helped by a motorist who pulled over after spotting her on the street, with the force adding that the man in question has since contacted them and has “really helped out” with the search.
