Friends of a woman, who has been missing for more than four weeks, have travelled to Merseyside to join efforts to find her.

Mother-of-one Anita Stevenson, 39, was last seen by her partner at their home in Tranmere, Wirral on 18 October.

A 41-year-old man from Birkenhead was arrested on suspicion of murder and later released on bail.

About 30 friends of Ms Stevenson, originally from Bradford, arrived in Wirral to help with the appeal.

"Somebody out there must know something," one of them said. "It's very, very out of character for our friend Anita to go missing like this.

"She has a little girl who's three, and we're just hoping for any little piece of information that might help us find her."

She was wearing a blue Adidas jacket and Nike leggings and trainers.
