Ms Wellgreen, 46, was last seen in the Bazes Shaw area of New Ash Green, where she lives, and has not been in contact with her family since.

Her car was at her home address and there have been no transactions on her bank or credit cards, Kent Police said.

A man in his 30s was arrested on 16 October and released on bail pending further inquiries until 16 November.

Detective Superintendent Paul Fotheringham said it was “entirely out of character” for Ms Wellgreen to go missing, and that she had “disappeared without a trace”.

The only item missing from her home was her black iPhone 4.

Mr Fotheringham added that “experts with specialist technology and forensic scientists” are helping officers with the search.
