Ursula Myrie was last seen by neighbours leaving her home in Moscrop Close yesterday morning and has not been seen or heard from since.

Police believe she was in Sheffield city centre at around 7.40pm Friday evening.

It is extremely out of character for Ursula not to return home and both police and her family are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Ursula is black, around 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build, with black hair.

She was last seen wearing a green jumper, a grey skirt, and was carrying a large, stripy bag.

It is understood that the suspects left the scene in a dark-coloured Audi saloon.

They are also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the Audi in the Broom area.

The book of condolence will be in the Town Hall Reception from lunch time today and will be open during normal working hours until the day after the funeral.

It’s difficult to express in words how sad this news is. I feel privileged to have known and worked alongside Harry, he was not only a loyal colleague but a valued friend, who dedicated his life to fighting for what he believed in. My thoughts are with Gill and all of their family.

– Councillor Julie Dore, Leader of Sheffield City Council
