Detective Superintendent Andy Henwood who has overall command of the two investigations said: “ As the days go on we are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of Tania and Gemma, their line of work makes them extremely vulnerable and we are working hard to bring these investigations to a satisfactory conclusion.

“Over the past few nights there has been a far greater police presence in the red light area of Ipswich.

“We have spoken to hundreds of people and this information is being followed up. However, the information has been somewhat limited with further sightings of both women, we are hoping that the leaflets and posters may jog people's memories and give us vital information to move these investigations forward.”

Police now have a description of the clothes Tania Nicol was last seen wearing - a light coloured top, blue cut-off jeans and pink high-heeled shoes.

Anyone who has information in relation to the disappearance of Tania Nicol or Gemma Adams are asked to call Suffolk Police on 01473 613500.
