"Samantha's disappearance is completely out of character as she has never gone missing before, leaving her four young children."

Police have appealed for information from anyone who may have seen her or had contact with her on social media.

Ms Henderson's car, a Peugeot 307 Estate with the registration HV04 ZFM, has been seized by officers.

A forensic examination is being carried out on her house and the surrounding area, including a nearby common and allotments.
