Police searching for a woman who went missing from home in Darwen have released a CCTV image they believe could be her.

45-year-old Susan Waring was last seen in January.

It was initially thought that she has last been seen on 30th January of this year, with the last corroborated sighting on 16th January.

But officers believe that the images show her at ASDA on School Street on 29th January.

They're keen to speak to a woman they believe she spoke to.

Earlier this week detectives confirmed that the case is now a murder investigation, and that a 46-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

I have a team of detectives working hard to find out what has happened to Susan and where she may be.

No one has seen or heard from Susan for weeks which is very unusual. She is often in touch with her sister, and is an active Facebook user but has not logged on since towards the end of January.

I would like to thank the public for their support and reiterate my plea for anyone with information to come forward.

We are treating this CCTV footage as a potential sighting of Susan and need anyone with information about the two people in the pictures to come forward.

If you recognise the women, remember seeing them on that day or think you may be one of the women, please come forward.

Any information, no matter how small, could be important.
