THE MOTHER and sister of missing woman Alena Grlakova have told her, 'Please come home', in a video appeal.
Alena (38), of Swinton, has not been seen since Boxing Day, when she was last seen leaving the Travellers Inn pub on Rawmarsh Hill at around 6.20pm.
Detectives are investigating reports that she was seen later that evening at the Fitzwilliam Arms pub in Taylors Lane, Parkgate where she asked someone for a lift.
Alena's family have flown from Slovakia to the UK and issued a direct appeal to her in Slovak to contact them so they can know she is alive and well.
In the video, her sister said: "Alena, please come back home.
"Don't worry, you are not in trouble. We are very worried about you.
"Even the children are worried about you. At least get in touch so we know you are alive.
"Alena, we haven't heard anything about you.
"Please come back home."
A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said a dedicated team of officers continued to search for Alena.
