Concerns are growing for a 21-year-old woman who went missing after a night out in Leeds.

Hannah Barker, from the Whinmoor area of the city, has not been seen since the early hours of Sunday and police say they are "very concerned" for her welfare.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said Ms Barker went out with friends in Leeds city centre on Saturday night and was last seen when she left them at about 3.40am on Sunday, in Merrion Street.

He said that she was due at work on Monday morning but did not turn up and her car was found parked in the St John's Centre car park, in the city centre.

Detective Inspector Melissa Porritt said:

We are very concerned for Hannah's welfare as it is out of character for her to go missing like this and for her not to have been in touch with anyone.

"We are carrying out extensive inquiries to trace her movements in the city centre and would like to hear urgently from anyone who has seen her or who has any information that could assist us in tracing her."

Ms Barker is white, 5ft 6in, and of large build, police said. She has longblonde hair, nose piercings and tattoos on her left arm.

She was wearing black skinny jeans, a burgundy t-shirt and trainers.
