The mother of missing Hull University student Libby Squire has said her daughter did arrive back to her student home before disappearing.
Squire disappeared late on Thursday night and police have said they are “extremely concerned” for her welfare.
The 21-year-old was reported missing after getting into a taxi outside the Welly Club on Beverley Road, Hull.
She was last spotted on CCTV on that road near to the junction with Hayworth Street, at around 11.45pm on Thursday.
She 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.
