|Fourth Suffolk prostitute missing||11/12/2006 - 13:55:28|
The naked bodies of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol and a third woman have been found near the town in the past eight days.
Suffolk Police said they were now looking for prostitute Paula Clennell, 24, last seen late on Saturday.
Asst Ch Const Jacqui Cheer urged women, particularly in the party season, not to go out at night alone.
In a direct appeal to prostitutes, she said: "Please stay off the streets, if you are out alone at night you are putting yourself in danger.
"We are coming up to the party season and up to Christmas. There will be groups of women going out and I would say you have really got to look after each other, plan how you are going to get there and come home together.
"Whatever happens on your night out, do not leave your friends alone and make sure you get home safely."
Ms Adams, 25, and Ms Nicol, 19, worked together and went missing from the red light area of Ipswich.
Ms Adams vanished on 15 November and her body was found in a stream at the village of Hintlesham, Suffolk, on 2 December.
Ms Nicol disappeared on 30 October and her body was discovered on Friday in the same stream at Copdock, near Ipswich.
Det Ch Supt Stewart Gull said: "While we can't formally link the discovery of the body at Nacton with the two murders, the facts speak for themselves."
He continued: "I do not know who we are looking for. He may be local, he may be from away. We could draw a number of conclusions as to where the bodies have been deposited and found. Anything is possible."
Det Ch Supt Gull said Ms Clennell was reported missing by a friend.
"We know that Ms Clennell uses a number of addresses in Ipswich and we are currently checking these to establish her whereabouts. "We would urge Paula or anyone who knows of her whereabouts to call us immediately so that we can be reassured that she is safe and well."
