THE girlfriend of a woman who vanished without trace in the early hours of the morning says she’s “worried sick”.
Cops have mounted an urgent search for Chelsea Allen, 31, who disappeared from her home in Helmsley, North Yorkshire, at 3am on Sunday.
Officers say they’re “increasingly concerned for her welfare”. The Army veteran doesn’t have her mobile phone or any money with her.
There have been no confirmed sightings of the chef since she left the terraced home she shares with partner Natasha Lewzey.
However, it’s understood one member of the public told friends they might have seen her since she disappeared.
One friend, who is comforting Natasha as the search continues, said: “It is completely out of character for Chelsea to just walk out.
“She didn’t say where she was going. It is not normal behaviour for her.
“She has left her pet dog at home.
“She should have been back working as a chef in a restaurant in Helmsley on Monday, but has not shown up for work either.
“Natasha is worried sick. We all are.”

Natasha has also begged for information in a moving post on Facebook.
She said Chelsea was last seen in a navy blue long-sleeved t-shirt with white patterns on the sleeves, grey jogging bottoms and Nike trainers.
“She’s on foot, no phone or money. She has to be here local,” she wrote.
“Has anyone given her a lift? Please help search – we’re all really, really worried. She’s been missing since early hours Sunday morning.
“Please ring 101 if you know anything, even if its vague, I beg you.”
Other pals have walked miles and put up posters in the search for Chelsea.
‘COME BACK SAFE’
One said: “There was a possible sighting but it’s unclear whether is was Chelsea or not as they were young and only saw the missing post after they’d left where they thought they saw her.”
Another wrote: “Come back safe mate, been thinking of you. Hoping this morning you would be home.”
North Yorkshire Police have called for anyone with information to come forward. A helicopter is scouring the area for any sightings of Chelsea.
Those who can help should call police on 101.
