OFFICERS are still searching for a Great Kingshill police sergeant who has been missing since Thursday.

Wycombe’s LPA Commander Supt Ed McLean yesterday made a direct plea to Louise Gibson, urging her to make contact with him or her worried family.

The 43-year-old - a sergeant who works under Supt McLean at Wycombe police station - was last seen in Great Kingshill at 5.30pm on Thursday.

She was upgraded to a ‘high risk missing person’ yesterday by police officers, who have described Ms Gibson as ‘vulnerable’.

Supt McLean said: “We are continuing to do everything to locate Louise and I urge anyone who may have seen her to get in touch, as we are getting increasingly concerned for her welfare.

“As with any high risk missing person investigation, significant resources are being dedicated to safely locate her.

“Her family is being kept fully updated and is being supported by specially trained officers.

“And Louise, if you see this, I just want to make sure you are safe and well. Please contact us.”

Ms Gibson is white, 5ft 7ins tall, of slim build with long, straight blonde hair.

Police said she was wearing a grey thigh-length jacket with a fur collar, light blue jeans and black boots when she disappeared.

She has links to Macclesfield in Cheshire, officers have said.
