The parents of missing Hull Uni student Libby Squire have made an emotional plea for her safe return nearly four days since she was reported missing.

Lisa and Russell Squire spoke of their heartbreak today as they made an appeal for help in the search for their 21-year-old daughter Libby who hasn’t been seen since Thursday.   


“Libby my darling pie, we just want to know that you are safe. Please get in touch with us any way you can,” Lisa said.

“The whole family is missing you, especially me, your dad, your sisters and brother.

“I miss you so much, it is breaking my heart, not knowing where you are. I love you more.”

Libby was seen by friends at around 11pm on Thursday 31 January getting into a taxi home after she was reportedly turned away from The Welly nightclub on Beverley Road in Hull.

She was later reported missing in the early hours of Friday but has not been found.

Dozens of police have been searching for the student, with the fire and rescue service helping, too. The focus of their search and investigation has been on and around Wellesley Avenue where Libby lives.

The Hull University student was seen on Thursday by a male driver and on CCTV at about 11.45pm, sitting nearby Wellesley Avenue on a bench at the corner of Haworth Street. Police are asking for anyone who was in this area between 11pm and 12.30am on Thursday to come forward.


Libby is 5ft 7ins with long dark brown hair and was last seen wearing a black top, black leather jacket and black denim skirt with lace detail.

She is the second student to go missing in recent days, in an unconnected incident Reading University student Daniel Williams is also missing. He has not been seen since leaving a nightclub on campus in the early hours of Thursday morning.
