CONCERNS were growing last night for the welfare of a 19-year-old woman who has vanished, possibly after taking her car to sell to a potential buyer.

Emma Newman was last seen on Wednesday morning after leaving her Maldon home and her parents said yesterday the disappearance was out of character and it was unlike their daughter not to make contact.

A spokeswoman for Essex Police said Emma's family were concerned that she could have driven her old car out from her home in Fambridge Road, to meet somebody.

She said: “Emma has a new car and had her old car up for sale.

“Emma's family are concerned she may have taken it to show a potential buyer, although she had not indicated that to anybody.”

Emma is described as white, slim and about 5ft 6in tall. She has shoulder-length brown hair and occasionally wears metal-rimmed rectangular glasses.

The spokeswoman added: “If Emma is OK we would appeal for her to make contact with her family. “If she doesn't wish anybody to know of her whereabouts she should contact the police who will treat any information she gives in the strictest of confidence.”

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Emma is asked to contact Chelmsford police on 01245 491 212 or their local station.
