Police in Tenerife are searching for a missing British woman who vanished from outside a bar.

Amy Louise Gerard, 28, originally from Cleethorpes, was last seen outside Irish bar Molly Malone's in Puerto de la Cruz in the early hours of Friday morning.

Ms Gerard works at Tenerife's Loro Parque marine theme park.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has confirmed it is assisting the family of a British woman in Tenerife.
