Police are investigating the disappearance of a nurse from Bournemouth as a new CCTV image has revealed her last confirmed sighting.

44-year-old Rui Lo, who worked at Poole Hospital, was reported missing on Tuesday 27th May.

On Friday 27th May she was seen leaving the car park at 6.17pm that evening.

The distinctive silver Porsche Boxster with the personalised number-plate, L1 RUI, was recovered outside her home at Burnham Drive yesterday.

Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “It is still absolutely crucial for the investigation to establish what has happened to Ms Li between Friday evening and Tuesday morning.

“I am hoping this image of her distinctive car may jog people’s memories. Did you see her driving home that evening? I am even interested to know if you saw the car moving around or being driven by anyone else over the Bank Holiday weekend."
