The distraught father of a woman who went missing after a caravan site party nearly a week ago has pleaded for her to come home.

The distraught father of a woman who went missing after a caravan site party nearly a week ago has pleaded for her to come home.

Police divers have joined air and land searches for Lisa Dorrian, 25, along a stretch of the Ards Peninsula in the North.

No trace of the shop assistant from Bangor, Co Down has been discovered, and detectives have not ruled out crime.

But as the hunt intensified, her father John made an emotional appeal to his daughter last night.

He said: “If she is out there and sees all this involvement by the police and the media it doesn’t matter. Don’t worry about it, come back. Just please come back.”

Ms Dorrian has not contacted family or friends since she attended a party at a caravan park on the site of an old wartime airfield at Shore Road in nearby Ballyhalbert.

She was last seen there at around 5am on Monday, leaving her handbag and personal belongings at the scene.

Police were due to go back to the village in the morning, one week after the woman vanished. Officers will stop cars and distribute flyers in a bid to find a clue to the mystery.

“They’ll be asking everybody along the road, giving out leaflets and basically just trying to find any new leads,” Ms Dorrian’s sister Joanne said.

Property owners in the area have also been urged to check garages and outhouses for anything suspicious.

The missing woman is 5ft 4ins in height, of thin build with blonde hair.

She was wearing a white short sleeved top with lettering on it, cream combat trousers and a pair of white furry moon boots.
