Five arrests over missing businesswoman Carole Waugh
Police have arrested five people over the disappearance of a businesswoman who lives in the West End of London.
Carole Waugh, 50, has not been seen since early May. She has never gone missing before and the disappearance is said to be out of character.
Three people were arrested on Wednesday and another two on Friday in connection with the case.
All five remain in custody at various police stations.
Det Ch Insp John McFarlane, of the Metropolitan Police, said: "Ms Waugh is a successful businesswoman, originally from the Durham area.
"She has worked in the Middle East and has maintained a home in central London for a number of years.
"Her disappearance is very out of character.
"Both her family and I are very concerned, and ask for the help of the public in tracing her.
"We appeal for anyone who has seen Ms Waugh since early May or has any information on her whereabouts to come forward."
