The family of a missing junior doctor who grew up in Melbourn have thanked people for their ‘help, hope and kind words’ since she went missing in Torquay on Friday.
The doctor’s car was discovered near Anstey’s Cove, and a hoodie was found on Sunday night.
The family of the 25-year-old issued a statement saying: “The support we have received from family and friends has been much appreciated, and clearly Rose is loved far and wide.
“We are overwhelmed by the support from her friends and colleagues, dozens of whom have been combing the Devon coast in search of Rose.
“As the search continues we would appreciate some privacy from the press in our time of distress. This request extends to our family, friends and acquaintances who are being questioned by the media.
