The mother-of-five's car was left at home last Tuesday evening, and her son Lewis Burdett has posted on his Facebook he is "worried about her" and "misses her," as her before is completely out of character.

The 22-year-old said: "This behaviour is so unlike her, she’s never done anything like this before.

"The ones in my family that are probably being hurt the worst by this all are the young ones the family - Her 12-year-old son and her son and daughter who are both six.

"I can’t imagine how hard this must be for them to try and understand what’s going on.

"I believe I speak for all her family and friends when I say that we are all incredibly worried about her and miss her so much it hurts, all everyone want is for her to come back from where ever she may be.

"Me and all my family and her friend urge anyone with any sort of information to come forward."

Spokesman for the police, Andy Saunders, said: "Sarah was last seen in the Bazes Shaw area during the evening of October 9 and officers and relatives are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

"She is white, of medium build and has straight brown hair. She is around 5ft 7ins tall and has green eyes.
