Police in Manchester say they are growing increasingly concerned of the whereabouts of a missing 28-year-old woman from Cheetham Hill.

Nadia Javaid was last seen at her home on Esmond Road on Wednesday 7 May 2014 at around 10.15am.

She is described as being of slim build, 5ft 4in tall, has long black hair and brown eyes.

She is believed to be last seen wearing a yellow and grey striped t- shirt and a black linen sari.

Anyone who may have seen her are asked to phone police on 0161 856 3913 or 3923 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

CCTV of teen gang robbing shop

Police have released CCTV of the moment a teen gang robbed a shop in Cheetham Hill and attacked a member of staff.

Greater Manchester police say at 9.20pm on Saturday 5 October, six men in their late teens went into Premier Stores on Queens Road. They told staff to go into the back of the shop, while two of them went behind the counter and took three bottles of vodka.

As a member of staff attempted to stop them from leaving, one of the group pelted him with a full beer can.

They ran from the shop and turned right towards the Fairy Lane estate. All six are white and in their late teens. They were wearing gloves and had their faces covered with hoods pulled up.

Detective Sergeant Alex Wild said: "We are urging the public to look at the CCTV and see if you know any of the offenders.

"If you know anything about who was involved or remember seeing a group of teens in the area around the time of the robbery we would be keen to hear from you."

Police investigating the disappearance of a Cheetham Hill mother-of-three have made a further arrest.

A 38-year-old man from Salford was last night, Friday 5 July 2013, arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and is now being interviewed by officers.

Ranya Alayed, 25, from Cheetham Hill, was reported missing from home on Tuesday 2 July 2013.

It is extremely out-of-character for Ranya to disappear in this way and police have launched a missing from home investigation.

Ranya previously lived in the North East of England and moved to Manchester in January 2013.

Officers have also now been given more time to interview three people previously arrested in connection with the investigation.

A warrant of further detention was granted relating to a 33-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and a 55-year-old woman and 64-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Anyone with information about Ranya's whereabouts is asked to call police on 0161 856 3101.
