A FINANCIAL reward has been offered today by the grandparents of missing Harwich teenager Natasha Coombs, who was last seen in Ipswich.

Peter and Wendy Clackett, from Harwich, attended a news conference at Clacton police station today where they described the nightmare they have been living since her disappearance on Friday, July 27.

Mr Clackett, 62, said: “There hasn't been any leads. She just disappeared into thin air. Now we are hoping police can come up with some answers.”

Mr Clackett last spoke to his granddaughter before she went out on Friday night as she wanted to thank him for the money he gave her for perfume for her holiday.

He added: “The next day my wife and I were on an outing to Yarmouth and my wife phoned by daughter to say we had arrived and that was when she had told us. We were devastated.

“The reward I have put forward myself is a substantial amount for anyone that can get my granddaughter safely home. I would give anything to get her back. It is a living nightmare for us and the whole family is devastated.
