Ranya Alayed, 25, disappeared from home in the Cheetham Hill area of the city on Tuesday. Her family are said to be "frantic with worry."

Officers have arrested a man on suspicion of murder. Another two people have been arrested on suspicion of helping an offender.

Superintendent Vanessa Jardine says: "We cannot rule out the possibility that Ranya has come to some harm and we won't know for sure until we find her."
