Police investigating the disappearance of a Peterborough mum have released an image of a distinctive bag they want to trace.

Vitalija Baliutaviciene, 29, has not been seen since leaving her home at 5.10am on Friday 12th August. She had been due to walk down Lincoln Road to Geneva Street where she was to be picked up for work but she never arrived.

It is believed Vitalija was wearing light blue three-quarter length jeans, a blue denim jacket and light plimsoll trainers when she went missing.

Police also believe she may have also been carrying an umbrella. Now, officers have released images of a distinctive brightly coloured bag that she carried.

Detective Inspector Martin Brunning said: "This is a very distinctive bag which is has a brightly coloured butterfly pattern."

"We are very keen to trace the whereabouts of the bag or hear from anyone who believes they may have seen it since Vitalija went missing."

Officers have spent the weekend continuing house-to-house inquiries in the New England and Millfield area and trawling through hours of CCTV. Specialist teams also carried out searches of woodland and wasteland across the city.

Anyone with any information about Vitalija's disappearance should call DI Brunning on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
