Humberside Police have confirmed they have been granted an extension by the courts for officers to question a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of Libby Squire, who is from High Wycombe.

The extension will allow officers to continue to question the 24-year-old man until 9:11pm on Sunday (10/02) evening.

Detective Superintendent Mathew Hutchinson said: “I can confirm that the court has granted us a further 24 hours to question the man.

“We are still treating Libby’s disappearance as a missing person’s enquiry. I have said previously that we are keeping an open mind as to her whereabouts and that is still very much the case.

“Our number one priority is to find Libby Squire and we are still conducting extensive searches and appealing for any information from the public.”

The man was arrested at an address in Raglan Street, Hull, on Wednesday night.

Miss Squire was reported as missing after a night out in Hull on February 1. Officers have confirmed that Miss Squire was dropped off in a taxi near her home on Wellesley Avenue at around 11.29pm on Thursday, January 31.

10 minutes later, she was seen on CCTV near a bench on Beverley Road, where a motorist stopped to offer help.

She is believed to have been in this area until around 12.09am on Friday, February 1.

Both police and volunteers have been searching the local area since her disappearance was first reported.
