A major search operation is continuing for a junior doctor who has gone missing.

Dr Rose Polge (25) who works at Torbay Hospital in Torquay, Devon, has not been seen since February 12.

Her car was discovered in a car park near a shingle beach backed by hillside with thick woodland at 6pm that day.

Police officers, along with the coastguard, RNLI and Dartmoor search and rescue, are involved in searches to locate her.

The searches were halted overnight due to dangerous conditions, but restarted yesterday morning - with support from a police helicopter.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "We are extremely concerned for the welfare of Rose and are desperate to locate her.

Martin Ringrose, interim director of human resources at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones at this very distressing time."
