A charity dedicated to helping find missing people like North Herts author Helen Bailey is set to benefit from a fundraising boost after a team of budding volunteers took on a gruelling 500-mile cycle ride from Edinburgh to London - stopping off in Letchworth on Tuesday.

Missing People is currently highlighting the cases of eight missing people from Herts, including Helen, who disappeared from Royston with her dog Boris on April 11.

Appealing for information, her partner Ian Stewart – originally from Letchworth – said: “Days have become weeks and weeks have become months – Helen, please don’t let months become years. Helen, bring Boris home or ring 116 000. Life without you is just wrong.”

The team, including Paul Jones, father of April Jones – who was abducted and murdered in 2012 – set off on Saturday from Edinburgh and arrived at the Tower of London on Wednesday.
