OFFICERS are this morning continuing their search for missing 22-year-old Sian O'Callaghan.

Sian disappeared after leaving Suju nightclub in Swindon's Old Town at 2.50am on Saturday.

Det Supt Steve Fulcher, who is leading a team of more than 60 officers, said: "Members of the community are likely to notice increased police presence in Swindon as officers conduct their enquiries and specialist teams carry out searches.

"Today there will be further police activity including in the High Street in Old Town. I’d like to reassure the public that we are conducting a thorough investigation into Sian’s disappearance and that we have a team of highly trained officers working on the enquiry.

"In particular I am trying to establish Sian’s movements between 3:15 am and 4:00 am on Saturday morning in the area of Savernake forest. I would like anyone who saw her or any vehicles, especially in the area of Savernake forest where there are likely to have been only a small number of vehicles at that time of night, to make contact with police.

"I know that people can sometimes think that small bits of information are not important and they don’t want to bother the police but that small bit of information may be vitally important and I ask that you tell us.

"It is very important that anyone who knows of Sian’s whereabouts or of any reason for her to stay away contacts us immediately.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to appeal directly to Sian and ask her to make contact with her family or police to let us know that she is okay."

Sian is white, 5ft 3in tall, of medium build with brown asymmetric hair and green eyes. When last seen she was wearing a grey dress, black bolero style jacket, dark coloured tights and flat boots. She was carrying a dark handbag which had a beige flower attached.
