Public searches put on hold

The family have stopped all public searches.

In a Facebook post last night the family wrote that they are trying to work alongside police and help them with the investigation.

Last week several public searches took place organised by the family in which hundreds of volunteers and friends turned up to help find Becky:

All foot searches are postponed until a later date as we are trying to work along side of the police and help them with the investigation.

Police have urged us to flood everywhere, especially shopping centres, with posters. We do have some to give out but we are limited. So if anyone can print them out and get them anywhere & everywhere please do! Would be very much appreciated. The objective is still as it was at the beginning. That is to bring becky home safely!!!

Again, thank you so much for your continued support you are giving us as a family. It's all that's keeping us going right now.

Please like and share!

Record year at Bath Half Marathon

It's been a record year at Bath Half Marathon with the British stealing the show in the elite field taking first place in the men's and women's races. For the first time in 12 years a British male took the top spot, with Paul Martelletti finishing the 13.1 mile course in 65 minutes and 28 seconds.

I struggled on the second lap and the wind was quite strong and that didn’t help, but the crowd were so supportive throughout and really spurred me on to the finish.

– Paul Martelletti, winner of Bath Half Marathon

Nearly 13,000 runners pounded the streets of Bath in the half marathon. Almost 1,000 runners took part in the family fun run while over 30,000 people turned out to support the runners.
