She has left her personal possessions at her home address and police are concerned for her welfare.

PC Catherine Britton said: “Raja has no family in the area and we are concerned for her. She was very excited about the prospect of a new flat and it is unusual for her to have left behind her clothes and personal possessions.

“It is possible she may have left the country but her disappearance is out of character and I would appeal to anybody that knows of Raja’s whereabouts to contact police on 101. I would also appeal directly to Raja to let us know she is safe and well.”

Raja is described being 5ft7, medium build with long dark curly hair. She bay be wearing a ‘Baker Boy’ cap and speaks French but does speak some English.
