Her mother today revealed that the family had been involved in supporting the campaign to find four-year-old Madeleine McCann, who went missing from a holiday resort in Portugal, before Miss Duncan went missing.

Sonia Duncan said: “The McCanns are good friends of some friends of ours. We had given as much support to them as we could.

“We realise Madeliene is just four but Nicola is our daughter as well. I never thought I'd find myself in the same situation.”

Miss Duncan is described as attractive, 5ft 9in, of average build and with blonde hair. She has never gone missing before.

Suffolk police are investigating Miss Duncan's disappearance.
