The partner of a mother of four who has been missing for six days has appeared in court charged with her murder.

Police are carrying out a major search for Samantha Henderson, 25, from Corfe Castle, Dorset, but say her whereabouts is still unknown.

He has been remanded in custody until Friday when he will appear at Winchester Crown Court.
