Police have launched an urgent appeal to find a missing 38-year-old woman whose bag and phone have been found after she disappeared following a horse ride.

Amanda Hull was last seen on Haye Lane in Ombersley, Worcestershire at 9am on Saturday when she went to collect her horse and headed to some local stables.

West Mercia Police have made an appeal to say they are growing concerned for her welfare.

The appeal was shared by the owners of a local restaurant, who also revealed that police had found some of her belongings nearby.

The Holt Fleet posted: "Can Droitwich and Ombersley people please keep an eye out for Amanda Jane Hull and let Carol Hull or Kate Nicol know if anyone sees her.

"Amanda goes to the stables 6 days per week, but never made it this morning,” the restaurant added.

"She was seen on the horse, but the horse is back in the field and Amanda has not been seen since.

"If anyone in the area on the morning of May 22nd has any dashcam footage, or anything, please review it.

"Amanda is vulnerable and this is obviously completely out of character. She was wearing her horse riding clothes - black joulpers, tshirt, yellow high vis coat and brown boots (suede and leather).

"The police have her phone, bag and hoody. She has no money or phone so if you spot her please help her and contact the police on 101 quoting incident 00583i of May 22nd."

Scott Walker also posted: "Amanda just call or message - let us know you are ok. Everyone is missing you and worried. Come home - your horse is missing you too.

"We are still waiting for directive from the police on where best to focus the search efforts for Amanda Hull.

"There is a huge amount of people wanting to help search, which is great,” he added. "Until we receive any further detail from the police the only thing we can suggest is to search all of Droitwich, Ombersley and surrounding areas.

"Please avoid Haye Lane, Ombersley. This is where she was last seen and there is still a heavy police presence.

"Any roads and public footpaths between Ombersley and Droitwich would also be a good focal point."

Another friend Zowie Spragg wrote: "Amanda is still missing. Anyone out walking Droitwich/ombersley area please look out for her.

"Shes vulnerable and usually spends the whole day on the yard with her horse with the same routine so for her not to do that is out of character."

Police described Hull as white, approximately 5ft tall with blonde hair usually worn in a ponytail.

She was also last seen wearing a bright yellow jacket and brown riding boots, police said.

A force spokesperson added: "She has links to areas in Ombersley and Droitwich but may have travelled further.”

"Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to contact 101 quoting incident 583i of 22 May."
