Detectives investigating the disappearance and believed murder of missing mum-of-five Sarah Wellgreen are renewing an appeal for information.

Sarah was 46 when she was last seen in the Bazes Shaw area of New Ash Green on the evening of October 9 of last year.

According to a statement from Kent Police, officers are continuing to search a number of areas in connection with her disappearance and members of the public are once again being asked to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

Speaking on the case, Detective Chief Inspector Ivan Beasley, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: "Sarah was last seen more than five months ago, during which time we have arrested and charged a man with her murder.

"We remain absolutely committed in our efforts to find her and our specialist search teams, along with tremendous support from search volunteers, are continuing to investigate a number of different locations.

"With the emergence of spring it is now important to remind dog walkers and anyone else out in rural areas to call us, if you see anything that seems remotely suspicious.

"I’d also like to remind residents, businesses and landowners in and around New Ash Green to check your gardens, outhouses, and any other areas surrounding your properties.

"If you think you may have seen anything which has appeared suspicious, or have any other information which may assist the investigation and have yet to contact the police, please do not hesitate to get in touch."

Volunteers running the Search for Sarah Wellgreen Facebook page have also released a statement, insisting that background work is still being carried out in their desperate search to find the Dartford mum.
