Officers said she had also recently lived in York and Halton, Leeds, before moving to Micklefield.

Det Insp James Entwistle said: "This is a genuine mystery. We have no idea what has happened or where she has gone.

"It is completely out of character for Lana.

"The search is around her home address and we have used mountain rescue and dogs to make sure we have cleared that area."
