Police are looking for a Polish farm worker who has been missing for more than a week.

Danuta Domagalska, 27, has worked at New Moor Farm, a dairy business near Walworth, on the outskirts of Darlington for three years.

She was reported missing on 6 August by the farm's owner, and is being treated as a high risk missing person.

Durham Police are talking to Mrs Domagalska's husband, but also want to trace her brother who has gone missing.

Farm owners became concerned when Mrs Domagalska failed to turn up for work several days running. They describe her as a "popular, hard-working and cheerful" member of staff.

Mrs Domagalska worked at the farm with her husband, Marcin and her older brother, Piotr Lawniczak, whom she also shares a cottage with on the farm's estate.

She has a five-year-old son who lives with Mrs Domagalska's mother in Poland.

Det Supt Adrian Green said officers were keen to trace Mr Lawniczak.

He said: "I am extremely concerned for Danuta's welfare, as are her friends and family. We are continuing to talk to her husband but I am also very keen to speak to her brother, Piotr.

"If anyone has any information on where he might be, or where Danuta has gone I would urge them to contact us as soon as possible."

Mr Lawniczak is 6ft 2in (1.88m) tall, with a slim build and dark, short hair. When last seen, he was wearing a navy blue jacket with a grey hooded top and grey jeans.
