Hull

9 Feb 2019

A further extension has been granted by the courts for officers to question a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of Hull student Libby Squire.

The extension allows officers to continue to question the 24-year-old until 9.11pm tomorrow (Sunday, February 10).

Detective Superintendent Mathew Hutchinson said: “I can confirm that the court has granted us a further 24 hours to question the man.

“We are still treating Libby’s disappearance as a missing person’s enquiry. I have said previously that we are keeping an open mind as to her whereabouts and that is still very much the case. 

“Our number one priority is to find Libby Squire and we are still conducting extensive searches and appealing for any information from the public.”
