A close friend to Sameena Imam has said her family and those close to the 34-year-old are “praying for a miracle” after she went missing on Christmas Eve.
Sameena, a former pupil of Loxford High School, was set to spend the holidays with her family in Ilford but never made it home.
She was last seen at her workplace Costco in Coventry.
Friend Nina Hancock, 51, today praised Sameena, who she met when the assistant general manager worked in South Yorkshire.
She said: “She is most wonderful and beautiful person inside and out. She is the most warm hearted lady that you will have ever met.
