SEARCHES are continuing this morning for Amanda Hull who was last seen at the weekend.
The 38-year-old, from Ombersley, went missing in Haye Lane, Ombersley, at 9am on Saturday, (May 22).
Droitwich residents, and those from further afield, have rallied round over the weekend printing posters and looking for her, and have organised further searches today.
A Facebook group, ‘Urgent – Missing Person – Amanda Hull’ has been set up and organisers are appealing for volunteers to help with searches.
Matt Nicol, who runs Nicol and Co estate agents and is involved with the group, wrote on the page: “The Red Lion Pub Droitwich have offered to be a central location.
There has been no confirmed sightings of Amanda.
“Therefore the search needs to be widened.
“Any help you can give for any area will be gratefully received – going back to locations is also still worth while in case Amanda is moving around.
“If people wish to search areas methodically in groups or share transport please meet at The Red Lion pub in Droitwich.
“Groups will leave from 9.30 and every hour after.
“The community help so far has been phenomenal and whilst Amanda remains missing, let do what we can.”
A widely shared new picture of Amanda has emerged with her wearing what is understood to be the same coat she was wearing when she went missing.
Police say she was last seen wearing the bright yellow jacket, and brown riding boots. Amanda is described as white, around 5ft tall with blonde hair, and police say she has links in Ombersley and Droitwich though “may have travelled further”.

Advice includes to not search any land without permission of the land owner, not to search need cliffs or a steep bank, to keep a record of who is searching, and for children not to accompany searchers.
