Coastguard called in as search enters third day
The Coastguard is drafted in to help with the search for missing student Libby Squire as it enters its third day.
Humberside Police say the motorist who helped Ms Squire had contacted them and “really helped” with the search.
Detective Superintendent Simon Gawthorpe says: “We have specialist teams again out today carrying out searches and we are working with Humberside Fire and Rescue and the Coastguard, who will be around the River Hull.”
The student’s mother, Lisa Squire, speaks for the first time as she takes to Facebook to urge her daughter to come home, saying that she is “broken” without her.
