Last steps of missing lecturer

The last known movements of a missing college lecturer who is originally from Carmarthen, are to be reconstructed by police at Swindon.

There have been no clues to the disappearance exactly a week ago of the 41-year-old whose four young children are all being cared for by relatives from west Wales.

Mrs Razzell, who is separated from her husband, had just finished the school run and dropped off her boyfriend. when she parked her car outside Swindon College where she worked last Tuesday.

Her cousin told a press conference on Tuesday: "I am looking after your children but they need you."

Wiltshire Police originally believed Mrs Razzell may have been abducted but extensive inquiries have so far failed to provide any clues.

However, after leaving her red Ford Escort and being spotted entering an alleyway nearby, Mrs Razzell disappeared.

Her mobile phone was later found abandoned in the alleyway, but forensic tests on both the phone and her abandoned car have not given police with any clues about her disappearance.

Police divers were called in to search a large lake in Swindon at the weekend - but found nothing.

School club

The lecturer's four children, Catherine, 14, Matthew, 11, Emma, who is nine, and Robin, five, are all being looked after by relatives in Carmarthen.

She was reported missing after failing to pick up her two youngest children from an after-school club at 1830 BST last Tuesday.

Police support staff and actors are to be used in the reconstruction which will take place in Swindon.

Mrs Razzell had been due in court to settle financial arrangements with her husband on Thursday.

Her boyfriend Greg Worrall, 43, last week appealed for Mrs Razzell to contact him saying the family wanted to see her: "We love you, come home," he said.

At a police press conference on Thursday, Mr Worrall said: "If you can see me now Linda, your children want you to come home, I want you to come home.

"Your family in Wales, your cousins, they all want you to come home."

Mr Worrall said: "It's Matthew's birthday soon and you promised him a shopping trip.

"He won't hold you to it but he just wants you to come home. We love you, come home."
