A NATIONWIDE manhunt has today switched its attention to Suffolk in a bid to unravel the mysterious disappearance of a 41-year-old woman from Yorkshire.

Sybil Applequist, of Bridlington, East Yorkshire, has not been in contact with her family for around one year and a 49-year-old man is currently on police bail on suspicion of her murder.

Numerous appeals for information about the whereabouts of Mrs Applequist have been made in Yorkshire but this has yet to yield any positive leads.

All known relatives, friends and colleagues have been spoken to but police are today widening the search to other areas of the country in a bid to track her down.

Before she went missing, she lived with her husband John, but did not have any children. She was unemployed at the time she went missing but she previously worked at a fish shop in Bridlington.
