She was spotted leaving work at around 2pm in her silver Beetle, with the registration number VD06 WVX.

Michelle was due home in the city centre at around 6pm, but didn’t return and has not been seen or heard from since. However her car has activated a number of Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems.

Detective chief inspector Steve Whittaker, said: “We know Michelle stopped at a shop in the Glossop area at around 3.50pm, and then her car was flagged up on the ANPR systems travelling west across the country.

“The last activation of Michelle’s car on the ANPR system was on Monday evening at around 9.25pm, in Llandudno in North Wales, and we believe she may be in that area.

“There has been no contact from Michelle and no sightings since Monday and we are extremely concerned for her safety and wellbeing. I would urge anyone who may have seen her or her car, to please contact police.”

Anyone who sees Michelle, or has seen her car, should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 1041 of December 8.
