Mum of Amanda Hull, 38, who vanished after horse ride reveals 'this is killing me' as new pic shared for search
THE mum of a woman who vanished after setting off for a horse ride has told of her frantic worry, saying "this is killing me".
Amanda Hull, 38, didn't come home after her dad dropped her off at her horse's field in Worcestershire on Saturday.
She was seen collecting the animal from the field in Ombersley, and leading him towards a nearby stables, an activity she does six days a week.
But she didn't reach the stables – with her horse found back in the field with her bag, which had her phone, money and lunch in.
Friends and family have pulled together to launch search parties to try and find Amanda, with cops issuing an appeal.
A new photo of her was shared by worried pals, showing the keen horse rider in the high vis jacket she is thought to have been wearing when she disappeared.
Today her mum, Carol, wrote: "Come on somebody must know something. This is killing me.
"It doesn't matter how small, if you know anything. Please ring the police. I am going out of my mind with worry."
Postal workers and taxi drivers have been given her picture and told to look out for the missing woman.
She was last seen on Haye Lane in Ombersley, Worcs., at 9am on Saturday when she went to collect her horse.
'THIS IS KILLING ME'
The pony was later then found back in his field, with a rug on and the gate locked.
Worried friends posted appeals for help in finding the "vulnerable" woman.
In the hours after she disappeared Carol wrote on Facebook: "Amanda it's Mom, please come home. You won't be in trouble I love you so much, if your reading this please come home."
Posting a picture of Amanda's horse Sunny, she later added: "Amanda Sunny needs you, please come home."
She added: "Please help us find her. She is an extremely vulnerable girl with special needs this is not like Amanda."
In an update this morning she said police had again searched all night but had no news.
She said : "I feel so helpless sat wishing and praying "This is everyone's worse Nightmare "I just want her home safe."
Owners of a local restaurant took to social media to share the details of the search.
The Holt Fleet posted: "Can Droitwich and Ombersley people please keep an eye out for Amanda Jane Hull and let Carol Hull or Kate Nicol know if anyone sees her.
"Amanda was last seen on Haye Lane, Ombersley, at 9am 22/5/21 where she went to collect her horse and head to Hadley Stables.
"Amanda goes to the stables six days per week, but never made it this morning.
"She was seen on the horse, but the horse is back in the field and Amanda has not been seen since.
"If anyone in the area on the morning of May 22nd has any dash cam footage, or anything, please review it.
"Amanda is vulnerable and this is obviously completely out of character.
"She was wearing her horse riding clothes – black jodhpurs, T-shirt, yellow high vis coat and brown boots (suede and leather).
"The police have her phone, bag and hoody. She has no money or phone so if you spot her please help her and contact the police on 101 quoting incident 00583i of May 22nd."
Amanda is described as white, approximately 5ft tall with blonde hair usually worn in a ponytail and was last seen wearing a bright yellow jacket and brown riding boots.
A West Mercia spokesperson added: "She has links to areas in Ombersley and Droitwich but may have travelled further.
"Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to contact 101 quoting incident 583i of 22 May."
Pal Scott Walker posted: "Amanda just call or message – let us know you are ok.
"Everyone is missing you and worried. Come home – your horse is missing you too.
"We are still waiting for directive from the police on where best to focus the search efforts for Amanda Hull.
"There is a huge amount of people wanting to help search, which is great.
"Until we receive any further detail from the police the only thing we can suggest is to search all of Droitwich, Ombersley and surrounding areas.
"Please avoid Haye Lane, Ombersley. This is where she was last seen and there is still a heavy police presence.
"Any roads and public footpaths between Ombersley and Droitwich would also be a good focal point."
