Fears grow for young UK woman missing after night out in Swindon

Swindon - A 22-year-old personal-assistant and avid Facebook user has gone missing following an evening out at a night club in Swindon on Friday night. Sian O'Callaghan's disappearance is completely out of character and she has never gone missing before.
Chief Inspector Mike Jones of Wiltshire Police, who is leading the search said, "She is normally an avid Facebook user, but has not used her account since earlier in the day on Friday", he explained. Insp Jones also said Sian had no reason in her personal life which would suggest she may want to leave the area. "For Sian not to return home after a night out and not make any contact with friends or family is not only unusual for her, but is something she has never done before", he added.
Miss O'Callaghan has never gone missing before and her family, who say she has always kept in close touch with, are extremely worried. According to Metro UK, she has not been seen since leaving friends at a Swindon nightclub during an evening out last Friday. She left the Suju nightclub at 2.50am on Saturday morning.
On her Facebook wall she last wrote of "looking forward to a fun-filled weekend". Her mobile phone was last used to make a call from Savernake Forest on the outskirts of Marlborough, Wiltshire. Sixty police officers have searched the area throughout Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.
Police have continued to search the 4,500-acre forest this morning and Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher, who is leading the search team, appealed to Miss O'Callaghan to contact her family or the police, report BBC Wiltshire. He has also urged people not to go out to Savernake or search for anything at the moment.
Miss O’Callaghan is 5ft 3in tall, of a medium build, with brown hair and green eyes. The last person to speak with her was her friend Kate McLeod, who said, "We were in the club until half three looking for her. Now we all just want her to come home. It’s so out of character for her not to go home".
At the time of her disappearance she was wearing a grey dress, a black bolero jacket, dark-coloured tights and flat boots, and was carrying a dark handbag.
