Police have launched a fresh appeal to find a 20-year-old woman this weekend.

North Yorkshire Police (NYP) have urged anyone who believes they have seen or know the whereabouts of Annie Dryden from Middlesbrough to contact them with information after she was last seen on January 4.

She was last seen on that  day when she boarded a train at 2.09pm at James Cook train station in Middlesbrough, and got off at around 2.38pm at Battersby in North Yorkshire.

Police and her family have thanked everyone who has helped in the search so far.

A NYP spokesperson said: “We have received a great response from members of the public with potential sightings and these have led us to search areas of North Yorkshire and the North York Moors, including Battersby and Castleton.

“As we go into the weekend, we encourage anyone who believes they have seen or know the whereabouts of Annie, to contact us with information. We want to keep Annie in your thoughts when out and about in North Yorkshire and further afield.

2We also continue to appeal to Annie to get in touch with us, your friends, family or the Missing People charity.

“North Yorkshire Police can be contacted on 101 or 999 if you know Annie's immediate whereabouts. You can also call or text the charity Missing People on 116000 - this is free.

“Enquiries to locate Annie are ongoing and again, we would like to thank everyone who has assisted in any way, even sharing our appeal, as all efforts make a huge difference.”
