Hundreds of volunteers have scoured woodland for a missing mum-of-five, Sarah Wellgreen, who hasn’t been seen for almost two weeks.
About 200 people joined the search for Sarah Wellgreen this weekend, using rakes and sticks to move leaves or debris covering the floor.
Volunteers went through woodland near the 46-year-old beautician’s home in New Ash Green, Kent, amid growing fears for her well-being.
The mum vanished 12 days ago and has not used her mobile phone or bank card since then.
Sarah was last seen on October 9 at her home and she has not been found despite searches and a number of appeals from police.
Last week, police arrested a man in his 30s in connection with the missing person enquiry.
He was released on Friday pending further inquiries.
Sarah’s family and investigators have grown increasingly concerned for her welfare, according to Kent Police.
She is believed to have links to areas outside Kent, including Farnham in Surrey and Portsmouth.
Sarah’s son Lewis Burdett, 22, says her disappearance is completely out of character and she has never gone missing before.
He posted on his Facebook page: “MISSING!!! My Mum, Sarah Jane Wellgreen hasn’t been seen or heard from since Tuesday night (October 9) police have got involved now please share this as much as you can we are all worried about her and miss her.
“Last seen in New Ash Green Kent, car was left at home please contact me or 101 the slightest bit of information could help so much , thank you.”
Sarah’s dad Antony, 67, said she has not used her phone or bank card since she went missing, and there has been no trace of her movements.
He issued an emotional appeal, urging his daughter to “please come home”.
The worried dad told the Sun: “I just hope to God she’s alive.
“We pray for her.
“It’s not at all in her character to leave her kids. She wouldn’t have done it.”
Police have said they are keeping an “open mind” regarding the circumstances behind her disappearance.
The force has issued multiple appeals in the hope of trying to trace the mum, who is of medium build, has straight brown hair and green eyes, and is about 5ft 7ins tall.
