"Lauren hasn't been seen for some days now and we're growing increasingly concerned ... we really need the public's help in finding her ..." Detective Inspector Mark Langdon has said.
"As Lauren's car was found in Woolacombe our focus has been on the North Devon area, so we're directing our appeal at any surfers or ramblers who may have passed through the area in the past fortnight."
"We're particularly keen for bed and breakfast owners or hoteliers in and around the Woolacombe area to check whether she has booked in with them."
"We really need the public's help in finding her so if you see her or think you might know where she is, please get in touch ... ” he has urged.
