Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for the public's help to find missing 26-year-old woman Stacey Hyde.

Stacey was last seen in the Priorswood area of Taunton at approximately 4.30pm on New Year's Eve.

Police are concerned for her welfare and want to find her to make sure she is safe.

Stacey is white, 6ft tall, of slim build and has blonde hair. She was wearing a red jumper and blue jeans which are possibly ripped.

Officers believe she may be in the company of a man in his late 20s who is described as being of slim build with short, possibly bleached hair and facial hair.

Stacey, who also sometimes goes by the name Anastasia Darlison, may be in an agitated state and police advise anyone who sees her not to approach her but to call them immediately.
