The parents of missing Libby Squire have thanked people for helping to search for their daughter.

The search for the Hull University student has entered its third day.

The 21-year-old was last seen getting into a taxi near the Welly Club music venue in Beverley Road at about 23:00 GMT on Thursday.

In a statement filmed by Humberside Police, Libby's father, Russell Squire, described his daughter as "our kind, thoughtful, beautiful girl, who is loved by so many people".

He appealed for people to come forward with any information "no matter how small or irrelevant it may be".

He added: "We just want you home."
