A FIFTH Ipswich prostitute has been reported missing.

Suffolk police have said 29-year-old Annette Nicholls was reported missing by her family today and has not been seen for a week.

Police are currently investigating the murders of three prostitutes and another who is also missing, Paula Clennell.

However there is a glimmer of hope for Ms Clennell as a friend is said to have spoken to the 24-year-old at 10.30pm yesterday when she was said to be looking for somewhere to stay.

Police said both women were reported missing following extensive media coverage surrounding the murders of vice girls Tania Nicol, 19, and Gemma Adams, 25.

Ms Nicholls has not been seen by her family since either last December 3 or December 4.
