Police investigating the apparent disappearance of a 22-year-old woman in Sheffield have said she appears to have travelled abroad.

Officers have called off the search for Julie Ndjepel who had not been seen since Boxing Day.

South Yorkshire Police issued a public appeal for information about her after she was reported missing on December 30.

But a spokesman said: “Following extensive enquiries carried out by officers, it is believed that Julie has travelled to the Republic of Congo and the inquiry has now concluded.”

They thanked members of the public who had assisted with the appeal.
