The boyfriend of missing Sarah Wellgreen has made a plea for anyone with footage to send it to police and help bring her home.

Neil James, 45, urged people who had any video to upload it to a website officers are monitoring - with today marking a month since the mother-of-five went missing.

Miss Wellgreen was last seen in the Bazes Shaw area of New Ash Green during the evening of Tuesday, October 9, and was reported missing on Thursday, October 11.

Posting on Facebook, Mr James said: "It is vital that people vite CCTV and dashcam footage within 10 miles of New Ash Green from October 9, at 6pm, to October 10, at 8am, to the dedicated website, if you haven't done so already."

Miss Wellgreen's partner then asked people to continue their support for the police and the Searching for Sarah Wellgreen page that has been set up to help find the beautician.

Mr James added: "Again please continue to support Kent Police and the Searching for Sarah Wellgreen Facebook page as we want our Sarah - mum of five, daughter, family, friend and fiancée home."

The 46-year-old was last seen exactly a month ago in the Bazes Shaw area of New Ash Green, and police have been searching woodlands and countryside in the hunt for her.

Officers revealed yesterday that they have received more than 2,000 hours of CCTV footage from different locations.

"Dog walkers and anyone out in rural areas should also call us if they see anything that seems suspicious.

"We have also taken more than 200 calls from members of the public and I would encourage anyone who has not called us, but who has information that may assist the investigation, to get in contact."
