Libby Squire Investigation
As the investigation into the disappearance of Hull University student Libby Squire continues, North Bank Commander, Chief Superintendent Phil Ward has released the following statement at a press conference yesterday afternoon (Monday, 4 February).
“Over the last four days we have carried out extensive land and house searches in the areas she was last seen, with numerous house to house enquiries made and people spoken to, in an attempt to find Libby or information as to where she may be.
“We have also obtained and viewed hours of CCTV footage to try and trace Libby’s movements that night, and to identify anyone in the area who may be of interest to the investigation.
“In addition, we have received numerous calls from members of the public with information, assistance from students at the university carrying out searches within the uni and witnesses coming forward to help with the investigation.
“I want to offer my utmost thanks to everyone as your help has truly been invaluable, as well as the local community who have been incredibly helpful and understanding while our teams have been carrying out their work in their neighbourhood.
“While these enquiries have not provided confirmation as to Libby’s whereabouts or to her safety, it has shaped a more precise and exact timeline of her movements.
“We now know Libby arrived on Wellesley Avenue, her home address, around 11.29pm, although it’s not believed she entered the property. On searching the address, we did discover her mobile phone which despite analysis, has not provided any further insight as to where she may be or her movements that night.
“She is then seen on CCTV on Beverley Road at 11.40pm, and seen near to a bench close to the bus stop and junction with Haworth Street, when a motorist stops and offers her help.
“We believe she may have been in this area until around 12.09am, and are now continuing searches in and around the neighbouring roads and streets as well as viewing further CCTV footage.
If you own a property or business premises in the area of Beverley Road that has CCTV installed and have not already been contacted by the police, please check your footage from the 1/02/19. Any information you provide could be vital to our investigation. Likewise if you use a dashcam in your vehicle please check your footage from last Thursday night into Friday morning.
