The father of missing Melanie Wilson has made an emotional plea for her return. He last saw his 22 year-old daughter on Monday 17 October 2016.

Melanie's family and friends are growing increasingly concerned for her safety since was reported missing.

"I’d imagine hell is similar to what I and family and friends are going through. We’re all heartbroken. Everywhere we look there’s a reminder of her.

"The last time I saw her was when she popped in to see me at home on Monday 17 October.

"We just had a general chat and hugged each other as she left. She seemed her usual self.

"The last contact I had with her was a text she sent me at about 11pm on Wednesday 19 October which said ‘I love you dad.’ I sent her one back saying ‘I love you too darling.’
