Ms Wellgreen’s car was left parked at her home and the only item missing is her black iPhone4 which has not been traced.

Detectives say there have been no new transactions on her bank and credit cards.

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

Areas searched include Dartford town centre and a road near the Brands Hatch motoring circuit.

Ms Wellgreen is described as white, around 5ft 7ins tall, of medium build, with green eyes and straight brown shoulder-length hair.

Detective Superintendent Paul Fotheringham said: “It is entirely out of character for her to go missing and having conducted extensive enquiries and searches, this case is now being treated as a potential murder.

“Sarah has disappeared without a trace, the only item missing from the home is her black iPhone 4.”

Ms Wellgreen is believed to have connections to Farnborough and Portsmouth.

Police have asked people who live in the area by the A2, M25, Cobham, Meopham and Horton Kirby to check sheds and woodland for any sign of her.

Officers are also going through more than 1,000 hours of CCTV footage they have received.
