She was last seen dressed in a black waist-length coat and black trousers – and also wears a stud on the right side of her top lip.

Heidi – also known as Beth – was wearing a black onesie with pink hearts and also brown ugg boots.

She is described as 5ft 7ins tall, slim build with shoulder length black hair which is usually tied in a ponytail.

A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman said: “Beth has links with Northamptonshire, including Corby and Wellingborough.

“She is believed to be wearing a black onesie with pink hearts on and a dark purple sweater and brown ugg boots.

“She was not wearing a coat.

“Officers searching for Beth are asking the public to please report any sightings of her or any information on her current whereabouts immediately to Warwickshire Police on 101.”

West Midlands Police say they believe Leanne could be in the Walsall area but were becoming increasingly concerned for her safety.

PC Ben Cooper, from Walsall Police, said: “We want to find Leanne as quickly as possible and would ask anyone who has seen her to come forward and contact us.

“I would also appeal directly to Leanne to get in touch and let us know that she is safe and well.

“Anyone with information should call Walsall Police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.”
