Sergeant Hesketh said: “I ask that anyone connected to retail staff and security in Preston ensure store managers and other staff members are made aware of this woman, and keep her picture in a staff area in case she is seen so that we can be contacted.

“Lyndsey, I appeal to you directly – these matters won’t go away until we have spoken to you and officers will continue to look for you until we find you. Hand yourself in to Preston Police Station.”
