Police 'very close' in Sian search
Police looking for missing nightclubber Sian O'Callaghan are "very close to identifying" her whereabouts, the detective leading the inquiry said.
The announcement was made after the detailed search of dense woodland was narrowed following a breakthrough in mobile phone technology.
Specialist search teams were examining specific "hotspots" within the 4,500-acre Savernake Forest, near Marlborough, Wiltshire.
The use of mobile phone technology had pinpointed several areas of interest to the police and had allowed them to rule out large areas of the forest.
Around 400 members of the public, including friends and family of the missing office administrator, had joined police on Tuesday in the painstaking search of the woodland.
On Wednesday, police asked people to stay away from Savernake Forest - around 15 miles from where Miss O'Callaghan was last seen on Saturday - as the thorough search continued.
After a day's intensive examination of the thick undergrowth, Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher, who is leading the inquiry, said: "We have made good progress in narrowing the search using a number of technologies and techniques and I believe we are getting very close to identifying Sian's whereabouts.
"Searches will be limited by available daylight but we will be further assisted by specialist dog teams who arrive tomorrow and resume the search effort as soon as daylight permits.
"Whilst I still want anyone with information to contact police I am not asking for any more public assistance with searches at this stage."
