The two daughters and son of missing Bicker woman Diane Tytheridge have made an appeal to their mother to get in touch.

Diane’s younger daughter Julia has flown from her home in Australia to join her family in Kent.

Today (Wednesday) marks a week since Diane was last seen in Boston, talking to a bus driver at the bus station.

Julia, Candy and Daniel have made the following appeal to their mum: “Mumma, we are all worried sick about you, we love you more than words can say and we are all here to support you.

“Please get in touch with one of us so we know you are safe - we love you.”

Police are also urging Diane to make use of the Missing People charity’s free, 24/7 confidential helpline. Call or text 116 000 or email 116000@missingpeople.org.uk

Tuesday, July 1:

Police have revealed that Diane Tytheridge, who has been missing from her home in Bicker since Wednesday, spoke to a bus driver before she disappeared.

A force spokesman said the last sighting is now at 8.38am on the Wednesday, at Boston bus station, where she made enquiries to the driver about buses to Skegness.

It is unclear whether she actually caught a bus or not.

The spokesman said Diane was wearing blue skinny jeans, a white t-shirt under a black fleece jacket, and she was carrying a blue crescent-shaped holdall. She was wearing her hair in a pony tail.

Police are continuing their appeal for Diane or anyone who has seen her to get in touch.

Inspector Dan Whyment said: “Diane has been missing for almost a week now and her family are distraught. We are urging anyone who has seen Diane, or who has any information that might help, to contact us.

“We are also appealing directly to Diane to let someone know she is safe.”

Police have said that if Diane does not want to let anyone know where she is the charity Missing People offers a number of ways that those who have left home, for whatever reason, can confidentially make contact to let somebody know they have not come to harm.
