UPDATE: Woman released on bail in connection with disappearance of Cambridgeshire mum

THE third person arrested in connection with the disappearance of a Cambridgeshire mum has been released on bail.

The 29-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in relation to missing mother-of-one Vitalija Baliutaviciene on Thursday. She has been bailed to return to Thorpe Wood Police Station on November 7.

A 39-year-old woman also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender is currently on police bail, while a 46-year-old man arrested on suspicion of kidnap and murder remains in Lithuania awaiting extradition.

Vitalija has not been seen since leaving her home in Burmer Road, New England, Peterborough, at 5.10am on Friday August 12.

Police are very concerned for Vitalija’s welfare, especially as she has not been in contact with her 10-year-old son for almost six weeks and also failed to return home for her 30th birthday last week.
