Missing 21-year-old Libby has not not been seen for three days after she was seen leaving a club.

Police have serious and significant concerns for her safety .

Libby Squire was last seen by her friends getting into a taxi outside The Welly on Beverley Road, Hull, at about 23:00 GMT on Thursday.

She got out of a taxi near her home on Wellesley Avenue and was last seen on CCTV about 23:45 on Beverley Road. 

Det Supt Simon Gawthorpe said her disappearance was out of character.

Speaking at a press conference, he said: “Her family have described Libby as a very thoughtful young woman who always put other people before herself.

“They have said this is very out of character for Libby, and clearly that raises our concerns about her significantly.”

Det Supt Gawthorpe said Ms Squire was spotted on the CCTV on Beverley Road, close to its junction with Haworth Street.

The officer said from there, she may have walked in either direction down Beverley Road or Haworth Street.

Police had made an earlier appeal to trace a driver who had stopped to help Ms Squire on Beverley Road, but they said he had now been located.
