    Libby Squire missing: More than 70 police search for Hull university student who disappeared after night out


    More than 70 police officers have been searching for a 21-year-old student who went missing after a night out.

    Libby Squire was last seen getting into a taxi outside the Welly Club, in Hull, at about 11pm on Thursday.

    Police believe the Hull University student got out of the vehicle near her home on Wellesley Avenue a short while later, however CCTV captured her on Beverley Road at about 11.45pm and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

    Ms Squire’s family said her disappearance is completely out of character and described her as a “very thoughtful and caring young woman who puts others before herself”.

    Superintendent Simon Gawthorpe, of Humberside Police, said police were “extremely concerned” for Ms Squire’s welfare.


    Missing Libby Squire: What we now know about Hull student's disappearance

    Dozens of Humberside Police officers have been combing Hull's streets for the past 36 hours and are speaking to residents as part of a huge, ongoing search for a missing Hull student.

    Libby Squire, 21, was seen getting into a taxi outside Welly nightclub in Beverley Road at around 11pm on Thursday, January 31. She was then helped by a man who got out of his car to help her 45 minutes later.

    On Friday, February 1, Humberside Police issued an appeal for anyone who knew where the University of Hull student was to come forward.

    Over 36 hours after the young woman first disappeared, a large number of officers are still out in force, along with the help of the police helicopter, in order to try to find her.

    Libby Squire missing: 'Blood-curdling screams' heard on night Hull student disappeared

    Police are investigating reports that a neighbour of missing student Libby Squireheard “blood-curdling screams” on the night she disappeared.

    The woman said she heard a female voice crying out "like someone being attacked" about 45 minutes after the last confirmed sighting of the 21-year-old near her home in Hull.

    Humberside police have received hundreds of calls about the University of Hull student since she was reported missing in the early hours of Friday.

    Officers have been taking statements from people who live in the area she was last seen.

    Ms Squire was dropped off in a taxi near her home on Wellesley Avenue, in the Newland suburb of the city, at around 11.29pm on Thursday.

    She was seen 10 minutes later on CCTV near a bench on Beverley Road, where a driver stopped to offer her help. The student is believed to have remained in the area until around 12.09am on Friday.

    A woman who lives close to Ms Squire's home reportedly heard a scream which "sounded like someone being attacked” at about 12.30am.

    “It was blood-curdling,” she told The Sun. “It was just one female scream. I was in bed reading and it made me sit up and go, ‘Oh my God.’”

    The neighbour, who was not named, said she then heard other voices "muttering" and more screams before a wooden door or gate slammed shut.

    Police confirmed they were investigating the woman’s report, as well as a number of other lines of inquiry.


    Why don't people who hear these screams ever call 911 WHEN THEY HEAR THEM?!

    Libby Squire: Abduction arrest over missing University of Hull student

    A man has been arrested on suspicion of abducting student Libby Squire, who went missing a week ago.

    University of Hull student Ms Squire, 21, was last seen in the Beverley Road area of the city after a night out.

    Humberside Police said a 24-year-old man was arrested at an address in Raglan Street in Hull on Wednesday night.

    "We have not yet found Libby and doing so remains our top priority," the force added.

    The man is in custody and assisting police with their inquiries.

    Ms Squire's parents have been informed of the arrest and are being supported by officers "at this difficult time", police said.

    Detectives believe Ms Squire - whose full name is Liberty Anna - got a taxi at The Welly nightclub last Thursday before arriving at her student house at about 23:30 GMT, where her mobile phone was found.

    But the philosophy student did not enter the house and her phone "has not provided any further insight as to where she may be or her movements that night", the force said.

    Ms Squire, from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, was spotted on CCTV 10 minutes later near a bench on Beverley Road, by the junction with Haworth Street, where it is believed a motorist stopped to offer her help.

    She is thought to have been in the area for about 30 minutes.

    Police said both the taxi driver and motorist were "not suspects".

    Missing Libby Squire: Suspect to be quizzed further

    Police investigating the disappearance of Libby Squire have been granted another 24 hours to question a man they suspect may have abducted her.

    The University of Hull student, 21, has been missing since 31 January, when she went for a night out in the city.

    A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of abduction on Wednesday at a house in Raglan Street, near to where Ms Squire was last seen.

    Humberside Police can detain the man until 21:00 GMT on Sunday.

    Det Supt Mathew Hutchinson said: "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."

    Appeals to find the missing philosophy student, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, have been displayed on digital screens in Hull city centre.

    Humberside Police said the appeal for information was being broadcast on 20 screens in the main shopping areas over the weekend.

    Libby Squire mystery continues as Polish butcher, 24, who was arrested over her abduction is charged – but with voyeurism and indecency offences NOT linked to the student's disappearance

    A Polish butcher arrested on suspicion of the abduction of missing student Libby Squire has been charged with a string of offences unrelated to the 21-year-old's disappearance.

    Pawel Relowicz, 24, was last night charged with voyeurism, burglary and indecency, four days after being arrested on suspicion of abducting Libby.

    Last night, in a statement that didn't name Relowicz, police said 'a 24-year-old man' remained 'of interest to the investigation' over Libby's disappearance. He was remanded in custody and will appear in court this morning.

    Detective Superintendent Matt Hutchinson said: 'Twenty-four-year-old Pawel Relowicz has today been charged with voyeurism, outraging public decency and three counts of burglary.

    'An offence of outraging public decency was reported to have taken place on 19 January 2019 and an offence of voyeurism was reported on the 26 December 2018 in Hull, East Yorks.

    'The three burglaries were reported between December 2017 and January 2019.'

    Since his arrest on Wednesday, officers have been searching the rented home the part-time taxi driver shares with his wife and two young children in a bid to find clues about Libby's disappearance.

    The home is half a mile from the bench where Miss Squire was last seen sitting in a drunken state shortly before midnight on January 31.

    Mrs Relowicz sobbed as she told MailOnline on Friday her son is 'no killer' - but revealed he had picked up a 'crying girl' in his car and offered her a lift home on the night the missing student vanished.

    Missing for 11 days: Libby Squire has united Hull in hope and in heartbreak

    Her disappearance has sent shockwaves across Hull and left people from all over the globe praying for her safe return.

    When Libby Squire decided to move to our city as an intrepid teenager in September 2017, she immediately fell in love with the place she would call her new home.

    Now, on the 11th day of her disappearance, the people of Hull have taken Libby into their thoughts and prayers as police continue their search for the missing 21-year-old.

    Huge search operations have taken place with police leaving no stone unturned in their relentless quest to answer how she vanished from near a bench in Beverley Road in the early hours of Friday, February 1.

    Gardens and tenfoots have been probed by officers, rivers and lakes have been scoured for evidence, and a home in Raglan Street, where a 24-year-old man was arrested, has been combed and sealed up by forensics teams.

    The man remains a "person of interest" to the investigation.

    Libby’s face has been plastered across billboards and thousands of posters have been handed out but as of yet the "happy, sociable" woman has still not been found.

    Even though the days continue to pass, hope remains strong Libby will be found and reunited with her loving family, in what has been a dark and disturbing time for the city.

    Thank you for starting this thread. This is quite close to me and I’m pleased to see a thread here.
    I’m disappointed the suspect hasn’t been charged with anything related to Libby.
    I feel the police think he’s involved, they’ve said he is still a person of interest but it sounds like they have no evidence to charge him yet.
    I’m hoping he doesn’t get released today.

    Married Polish butcher pleads not guilty to performing sex act in public and burgling knickers and sex toys days before student Libby Squire, 21, vanished - as police cordon off area of her local park

    The Polish butcher arrested on suspicion of abducting Libby Squire has been charged with performing a sex act on himself in the street and burgling a nearby house for sex toys and knickers just days before she vanished, a court heard today.

    Pawel Relowicz, 24, a married father-of-two, appeared at Hull Magistrates Court and pleaded not guilty to voyeurism, burglary and outraging public decency.

    It comes as police cordoned off an area of her local park close to what is believed to be a derelict boathouse as part of their ongoing investigation into Libby's disappearance.

    Bill Waddington, representing Relowicz, said he would not be making a bail application for his client.

    District Judge Fred Rutherford told the defendant: 'You have entered your not guilty pleas before this court.

    'The matters are too serious for this court and will be sent to Crown Court. You are remanded in custody to Hull Crown Court.'

    Relowicz was remanded in custody and will appear at Hull Crown Court on March 11.

    Glad you found the thread.
    This case is terrible. The guy is clearly a creep. I really hope they can find something to charge him (or whoever it may be, of course) in direct relation to Libby.
    Finding her would be a great start, I'm sure. Lots of searching still happening.

    MrsS Active Member

    I can’t believe she hasn’t been found yet. I fear she may have been put into the river and could be out at sea by now, in which case she will likely never be found.
    There’s still a part of me hoping she might be alive somewhere, like Jayme Closs.
    Surely this creep can’t be so clever that he’s left no evidence whatsoever.

    No bail ... seems odd that his own attorney is not requesting bail. Or is that normal there? He sounds like a real creep
  13. MrsS

    MrsS Active Member

    It is unusual based on other cases I’m following. I’ve seen bail given under much more serious charges recently.

    I’ve started to get a really horrible feeling that this guy might just be a creep, and nothing to do with Libby’s disappearance. Surely the police would have found something to link him by now if he were involved in any way.

    Libby Squire search on twelfth day with no breakthrough in hunt for Hull student

    The desperate and heartbreaking search for missing Libby Squire has reached its twelfth days.

    As police entered another day of searching for the University of Hull student, who vanished without a trace in the early hours of Friday, February 1, new CCTV footage emerged of her walking to Welly club on Beverley Road.

    The force continued to cut down vegetation in Oak Road at the playing fields as they searched for vital clues which could lead to finding Libby.

    Throughout Tuesday, officers could clearly be seen searching the area with chainsaws and sticks as they continued to hunt for clues. A police cordon was erected as officers continued scraping through reeds and vegetations.

    More missing posters showing Libby's face could be seen across Hull as the whole city's hearts break for the young woman and her family who are still desperately waiting for answers.

    New CCTV footage showing Libby just minutes before her last sighting emerged earlier on today. The clip showed her walking down towards the Welly club.

    Missing student Libby Squire 'may have come to harm', police fear, as replica clothing images released

    Police searching for missing student Libby Squire have admitted "she may have come to some harm".

    Detectives made the comments as they released images of clothes like the ones Ms Squire was wearing when she was last seen after a night out in Hull a fortnight ago.

    No trace of the 21-year-old has been found since she went missing in Hull, despite extensive searches.

    Police said Libby had been wearing a black leather jacket, denim skirt and Vans trainers when she was last seen.

    Detective Superintendent Martin Smalley said: "Over the last two weeks, our inquiries into Libby’s disappearance have continued around the clock with detectives and officers working night and day to find her and to understand what happened that night.

    "While we do continue to be hopeful and we will always keep an open mind, Libby has been missing for 14 days now and we sadly have to consider she may have come to some harm."

    Mr Smalley said: "We are continuing to support Libby’s family through this incredibly difficult and distressing time.

    "They are understandably distraught not knowing where their daughter and loved one is, and we will endeavour to give them the answers they desperately need."

    I don’t like how quiet it’s going. The searches seem to be scaling back and I’m afraid the police have very little to go on.
    After seeing a clip of the park they were searching on the news I was surprised how large it is. I’d imagined a small park but this is huge. She could be hidden in that park somewhere. I believe they’ve searched the pond and several areas of the park but I don’t believe they’ve done a thorough search of the whole area.

    Video and still shots:

    CCTV footage emerges of missing Libby Squire ‘getting in car with a man before he drives off’
    Cops quizzed Polish butcher Pawel Relowicz, 24, over the two pieces of footage after they were granted a 36-hour extension to 'quiz him over abduction'
    By Paul Sims, Emma James and Robin Perrie

    Updated: 12th February 2019, 11:43 am


    CHILLING CCTV footage shows a mystery man smoking by a car just minutes before missing student Libby Squire was last seen.

    The car pulled up for around 20 minutes on a dead end road just moments away from where the 21-year-old sat on a bench close to her student digs in Hull.

    Footage obtained exclusively by ITV News shows a man smoking outside by a car for almost three minutes just after midnight on February 1.

    After he finishes his cigarette, he opens the car door and a person is seen one minute and 42 seconds later on the other side of the motor opening the passenger door.

    ITV says the footage, which has a timeline over a minute slow, appears to show "someone or something" being put inside the car.
    Chilling sequence of events

    00:03:08 A car appears to be unlocked as two flashes of light are seen on the secluded road outside

    00:03:18 There are more flashes before a man is seen for the first time coming into view

    00:03:29 He opens the door and sits facing out in the driver's side as he appears to roll a cigarette

    00:03:37 A cyclist rides past who could be a vital witness

    00:06:06 As the man smokes, another car drives past who again could hold key information

    00:06:19 After sitting for two minutes and 52 seconds, the man walks away and car's lights flash again as though it is being locked

    00:07:58 A person is then seen on the opposite side of the car who opens the front passenger door. Someone or something is then put inside the vehicle.

    00:08:52 The man reappears and gets inside the driver's seat before driving off just before nine minutes past midnight.

    Detectives will want to investigate whether the car in the footage is the Vauxhall Astra seized from suspect Relowicz.

    They obtained the CCTV last Sunday but kept it under wraps as they frantically pieced together the car’s movements before and after Libby disappeared.

    The Sun was aware of the crucial development before the arrest but agreed not to publish details.

    Shop owner and dad-of-two Mohammed Burhan, 66, told how his cameras picked up a car driving along Newlands Avenue the night Libby vanished.

    He told The Sun: “The police have been into all of the shops along here asking for CCTV footage over a particular timeframe.

    The footage, taken on Haworth Street in Hull, shows the male driver rolling a cigarette before helping a passenger -who police believe is second-year university student Libby - into a silver hatchback.

    The man then walks around to the driver's side, gets in and drives off at 12.09am.

    A second film, obtained by The Sun from a shopkeeper, shows a similar car being driven along Newland Avenue, half a mile away, 10 minutes later, at 12.19am.

    It shows a police car patrolling the same road 60 seconds before



    Suspect's Vauxhall Astra has been taken away by police:

    The Haworth Street footage was captured by cameras overlooking steel gates to an electrical firm.

    Staff checked it after Libby was reported missing and alerted cops.

    But workers there are fuming detectives took so long to reveal it.
