Miss Nicol's family have confirmed that it is an image of the youngster, helping police confirm that she did make it into town on the night of her disappearance.

Detective Chief Inspector John Quinton, who is leading the investigation into Miss Nicol's disappearance, said: “Finding this image is important as we now have a definite indication of where Tania was and when on the night she went missing.

“I hope that, by releasing this image, it might jog the memories of people who were in the area at the time and prompt people to come forward with any information they might have.”

Officers investigating the disappearance of Miss Adams searched the Handford bridge area on Saturday evening.

During the day on Saturday the force helicopter was used to carry out routine searches of the Portman Road area.

A spokesman for the force said police were also searching areas near to where Miss Adams had last been seen as a matter of routine.

The 25-year-old was last seen in the Bramford Road area on the night of her disappearance although there has been unconfirmed sightings of her in West End Road in the early hours of the following morning.

Anyone with information about either of the women should call Suffolk police on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
