He said: "Not long now Mum, only 8 days left until we start to find out the truth about what really happened back in October last year, we still miss you every day, with court starting so soon it's getting so much harder not being able to have your guidance with the hard times ahead."

Police said the only thing missing from her home when she went missing was her black iPhone, and there have been no new transactions on her bank or credit cards.

Since Ms Wellgreen’s disappearance, police officers have searched woodland near Bluewater shopping centre and areas in Greenhithe near the River Thames.

The search for Sarah Wellgreen continues.
