The president of Royston Hockey Club has spoken of their devastation at the news that a former player is missing.

Rose Polge, a junior doctor whose family live in Melbourn, was last seen in Torquay on Friday.

More than 100 people have been involved in search operations to find the 25-year-old who lives in Devon, including close friends and family. Her father Mark is a doctor at Roysia Surgery in Royston.

Royston Hockey Club president Colin Smith said: “The hockey club is deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts are with the Polge family.

“The whole family have been involved with our club as players and umpires over many years and Mark is a family doctor to many of us.

“We are deeply saddened by the news and we pray for some good news.”

District councillor for Melbourn, Jose Hales, said: “My heart goes out to the family at this terrible time. The pain and worry they must be feeling is unimaginable. Melbourn has a strong community and will no doubt rally round to support the Polge family at this difficult time.”
