Rod Minchin in Swindon

The family and boyfriend of missing nightclubber Sian O'Callaghan yesterday made a tearful appeal for information to find her.

The 22-year-old was last seen about 2.50am on Saturday as she left the Suju club in Swindon alone.

Fighting back tears, Kevin Reape told a police press conference in Swindon: "I just want to say how worried we are about Sian. Someone out there must know where she is."

Miss O'Callaghan has not made contact with any friends or relatives since, causing police to become increasingly concerned.

Her phone was later used in a forest 12 miles away. Officers spent yesterday combing the forest for information on Miss O'Callaghan's whereabouts, staying there until nightfall.

Alarm

Miss O'Callaghan, an office administrator, had been on a night out with girl friends at the Japanese-themed club before she went missing.

Her boyfriend was not out with them and raised the alarm at 9.45am on Saturday morning when she had not returned home.

Miss O'Callaghan's brother, Liam (24) added: "Sian means the world to us and we just want her to come home. If anyone has any information please help the police and come forward."

Also present at the press conference were Miss O'Callaghan's parents Mick (51) and Elaine (48) and younger sister Lora (19).
