Scarborough Police have appealed to a “vulnerable” missing woman to contact them, as fears for her wellbeing grow.
Officers are desperate to speak with Kimberley Grace Reavley, of Londesborough Road, who has not been seen since Monday evening.
The 25-year-old, who police have said “has no reason to go missing”, was last spotted by a friend in Victoria Road at around 6pm that day, although it’s not known if they spoke.
Police have described Kimberley, who also has an address in Cromwell Avenue, Filey, as white with a stocky build and shoulder-length brown hair.
She was last seen wearing a blue denim jacket, a cream jumper, light blue trousers and white sandals. She was carrying a blue rucksack.
Inspector Tony Quinn of Scarborough Police said that they were concerned that Grace, who is a diabetic, was not in possession of her “essential” medication.
He added: “We are directly appealing to Kimberley herself to make contact just so we know that she’s well.
“She shouldn’t be concerned, we just want her to come forward so we know that she’s OK.”
Inspector Quinn said that Kimberley is a student at Yorkshire Coast College, studying at their Westwood Campus.
She has family and friends throughout the town and the sea front.
Police have now stepped up their efforts to bring her home safely.
Officers have put missing person posters around Scarborough and Filey, and “a number of detectives” are working on the case.
He added that several enquiries at the homes of family and friends have already been made.
It’s believed that the alarm was raised by her mother, Tracey, when she failed to arrive home.
Inspector Quinn said that officers believe that Kimberley is still in the Scarborough area.
However, he added that she does have a bus pass which enables her to travel all over the country.
Inspector Quinn added that there’s currently “nothing to suggest” that she had been harmed by a third party.
Inspector Quinn urged anybody with any information about Kimberley to contact Scarborough Police on 101.
