She is carrying a black handbag and a small black suitcase.

Louise is also believed to have visited Cardiff, yesterday.

Inspector Hannah Friend, from Warrington Local Policing Unit, said: “It has now been a week since Louise was in contact with her family and they are extremely concerned for her welfare.

“While these sightings are positive, this type of behaviour is totally out of character and we are keen to locate her as soon as possible.

“It is clear that Louise is utilising the railway network to travel across the country and at the current time we believe she could be anywhere in the UK.

“Therefore I appeal to anyone who believes that they have seen Louise, or someone fitting her description, to get in touch.

“I also appeal directly to Louise to make contact with us – your family are worried about you.”

Anyone with any information in relation to Louise’s whereabouts is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101, quoting IML 305217.

Information can also be passed anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
