Libby Squire’s last confirmed sighting caught on CCTV as she stumbles towards Hull nightclub

Unsteady on her feet and heading to a nightclub with her friends, these are the last confirmed pictures of missing student Libby Squire before she disappeared.

The 21-year-old is seen walking towards The Welly Club in Hull trying to negotiate a slippery path from snowfall earlier that evening. 

She arrives at the club’s student night at 11.18pm accompanied by three friends. 

Doormen, however, believe she may have had too much to drink and turn her away.

Less than five-minutes later, her friends make sure she is ok and wait with her until she is put into a cab and driven home.  

The footage – taken on the evening of January 31 – was recorded by a camera on a business next to the club, who have allowed these images to be published by MailOnline to help find the second year philosophy student. 

She is 5ft 7ins tall with shoulder length brown hair and can be seen wearing a black long sleeved top, leather jacket and black denim skirt with lace. 

The owner of the CCTV, property agent Lukasz Rybus said: ‘I want Libby to be found, to be back with her family and friends. 

‘This footage shows that she was dressed all in black and seems to be wearing lighter coloured trainers or boots. 

‘I just hope that this footage helps jog someone’s memory, if it helps someone remember seeing her, that can only be a positive thing.’

Libby arrived home about two miles away on Wellesley Avenue around 11.29pm, although it’s not believed she entered the property.

She was seen on Beverley Road at 11.40pm near to a bench and close to the junction with Haworth Street, when a motorist stopped and offered her help. 

Humberside Police believe she may have been in this area until around 12.09am.

Detective Superintendent Mathew Hutchinson said: ‘We are still treating Libby’s disappearance as a missing person’s enquiry.

‘I have said previously that we are keeping an open mind as to her whereabouts and that is still very much the case.

‘Our number one priority is to find Libby Squire and we are still conducting extensive searches and appealing for any information from the public.’

Police searching for missing Libby Squire today revealed how hundreds of uniformed officers and 50 detectives are ‘working around the clock’ to try and find her.

So far three specialist search advisors are overseeing the operation, which includes nearly a dozen underwater officers, dog teams, support officers from neighbouring forces as well as assistance from Humberside Fire and Rescue, the Coastguard and from NPAS.

Police arrested 24-year-old Polish-born butcher Pawel Relowicz, 24, a married father-of-two, last Wednesday, on suspicion of abduction.

He was questioned by detectives until Sunday night when he was bailed but he remains a suspect.

In a bizarre twist, Relowicz appeared at Hull Magistrates Court yesterday where he pleaded not guilty to five charges of voyeurism, burglary and outraging public decency – all unrelated to Libby’s disappearance.

He is accused of carrying out a sex act on himself on Wellesley Avenue, Hull, on January 19 this year – the same street where Libby lived and was last seen 12 days later.

It is also alleged Relowicz burgled a house near his family home in Raglan Street between January 25 and January 28 this year and stole sex toys, condoms, knickers and photographs from inside.

He is also accused of stealing three vibrators, a PS4 console and £20in cash in two other robberies in 2017.

And on January 23, 2018, Relowicz allegedly observed another person doing a private act knowing that person had not consented for his own sexual gratification.

He was remanded in custody by district judge Fred Rutherford.

The court appearance came as police cordoned off an area of parkland close to Libby’s student digs and searched what is believed to be a derelict boathouse as part of their ongoing investigation into her disappearance.

In a bizarre twist, Relowicz has since been charged with several sex offences around Hull - including one just 12 days before Libby vanished. The alleged crimes (pictured) date back to Christmas 2017 up until the eve of the student's disappearance

Officers are still searching Relowicz’s rented terraced home using heat-seeking infra-red cameras and have forensically tested his silver Vauxhall Astra car.

They are also examining CCTV footage, taken a few metres away from the bench where Libby was last seen which shows a male driver rolling a cigarette before helping an unseen passenger, possibly Libby, get into the car just after midnight on February 1.

The man is then seen walking around to the driver’s side where he gets in and pulls away.

Libby’s bereft parents Lisa and Russ, from High Wycombe, Bucks, are in Hull anxiously waiting for news and attended a church vigil in the city on Sunday.

Relowicz’s mother Marzena, meanwhile, says she has been left devastated after being told her son was remanded in custody on sex charges and burglary.

The mother of eight said she was desperate to travel to England to see her son, but said she could not afford the air fare.

‘I so want to see Pawel to find out what has been going on. I want to go to England, but do not have the money’, she said.

‘I was told by my daughter we had to get £2,000 for bail money but we do not even have those means. I do not have that money.’

Marzena, 52, said she had only spoken briefly to her daughter in law since her son’s arrest.

Speaking at the family home in the village of Warszewice, Marzena said she did not understand why her son was charged with voyeurism and public indecency.

She added: ‘I am a Catholic. I do not understand what he has done.

‘It’s the first time in my life I have even heard of someone doing something like that. I have children, I know what they get up to, never in my life did I see anything like that in my son.

‘That’s not my boy. I don’t recognize anything about that behaviour.’
