Helen Bailey went missing a month ago today from her home in Royston with her miniature Dachshund Boris and police are re-appealing for help.

Her partner Ian Stewart from Letchworth said: “Helen wherever you might be I hope you hear this message and listen carefully.

“We miss you and Boris so much. We are shattered in so many ways. Your mum, dad, John, Tracey, the lads and me plus so many others all need you.

You bring so much to so many people in ways you don’t even realise.

“You not only mended my heart five years ago but made it bigger, stronger and kinder. Together we learnt to live with our grief and move forward with our lives but never forgetting. Now it feels like my heart doesn’t even exist. Our plans are nowhere near complete and without you there is no point.

“We promised each other 30 years – please keep that promise and come home. Whatever has happened, wherever you are I will come and get you and Boris and give you whatever you need.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101.
