There "was nothing to suggest, at this stage, that the items retrieved by forensic officers near the spot where Libby Squire was last seen [on CCTV] are connected with the investigation into her disappearance", the police spokesperson said.

Around 250 students from the University of Hull, where Libby studies Philosophy and Religion, joined the search over the weekend and police officers were seen on streets around the campus this morning.

She was reported missing after getting into a taxi outside Hull's Welly club on Beverley Road at about 11pm on Thursday.

In a message posted on Facebook, her mother Lisa Squire thanked volunteers' efforts and said it had given her "great comfort" to know how highly her daughter was thought of.

In a statement filmed by Humberside Police, Libby's father, Russell Squire, described his daughter as "our kind, thoughtful, attractive girl, who is loved by so many people".

Police have appealed for anyone who was on Haworth Street between 23:30 and 00:30 on the night she disappeared to get in touch.

Police believe she had completed the journey of about a mile back to the vicinity of her home on Wellesley Avenue by about 11.30pm, but she did not go inside.

In the video, filmed by Humberside Police, Lisa speaking with tears in her eyes said: "It is breaking my heart not knowing where you are".

"We need your help with information to piece together Libby's movements, to find her and return her home safely to her family". Libby Squire was last seen on CCTV at about 11.45pm near the junction of Beverley Road and Haworth Street, round the corner from her home.

Mr Squire appealed for people to come forward with information "no matter how small or irrelevant it may be" and thanked everyone for their support during what he described as a "very hard time". He subsequently made contact with police and "really helped out" with the search, officers said.

Ryan Tweddell, a friend of Libby who organised a search by about 200 students on Saturday, said: "Libby is a loving, down-to-earth, typical, normal student".

Miss squire's family had previously said that the student's disappearance is "very out of character", and that she is a "very thoughtful and caring young woman who puts others before herself".

"We're keen to speak to anyone who may have been on Haworth Street, which is nearly adjacent to Beresford Avenue, between 11.30pm and 12.30am as part of this line of enquiry, to understand Libby's movements that night".

Specialist teams are also carrying out searches around the River Hull.

Squire is described as 5ft 7in tall with long dark brown hair.
