POLICE continue to appeal for help to track down a missing woman.

Officers were joined by marine rescuers on Severnside in the early hours of Sunday morning as they searched for 39-year-old Emily Bomken.

Gwent Police said it was in the area "carrying out enquiries in connection with our missing person appeal".
