Police have renewed their appeal for help to trace a woman who was seen in a distressed state near to the A12 at Blythburgh in the early hours of this morning.
Officers were called by a concerned motorists at about 1.50am, who had been travelling south on the A12 and had seen a woman near to the road.
The woman was described as partially clothed and she appeared to be in a distressed state.
She was said to be running along a field near to the A12 at Blythburgh.
A search of the area began this morning and is continuing throughout the day in a bid to find any signs of discarded clothing or the woman herself. Other enquiries are also being undertaken in order to ensure the woman is indeed safe and well.
Operational co-ordinator Insp Ant Bridgland said: “There is a possibility that this woman was in distress which is why we are keen to find her and establish the circumstances surrounding this morning’s sightings.
“We want people to contact us with any further sightings of her, but also appeal for the woman herself to contact us.”
Since the initial call, Suffolk police received three further calls from motorists reporting similar sightings.
Officers have spoken to witnesses and taken the initial caller back to the scene to identify the location.

Police would like to hear from the woman, anyone who knows of her whereabouts or anyone who has any information about this incident.
Calls should be made to Suffolk police on 101 quoting CAD 31.
