Detective Chief Inspector Iain Moor from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit added: “We have specialist officers working to support Sarah’s family and we would continue to ask that people respect their privacy at this very distressing time.

“We have a dedicated team of detectives working hard to establish the facts around this case and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who has seen Sarah over the past few months to establish exactly what happened to her.

“We have had a really good response so far from the community in Biggleswade, however I would urge people not to speculate about what happened or share assumptions or rumours, particularly on social media.

“If you do have information, no matter how small, it could prove vital to supporting our efforts and we again would ask you to come forward and report it.”
