Her partner Neil James has made multiple appeals on Facebook for anyone with information about her disappearance to come forward. 

A statement on the page says that the money will be used to provide a trust fund for Sarah's family.

It said: '˜Working with a local solicitor and accountancy company with expertise in trust funds and with permission from the family this page has been created to provide a trust for the family. 

'˜All donations will be used for the sole benefit of the family and no charges or fees will be paid to any trustees or volunteers.'

Ben Lacomba, 38, has been charged with Sarah's murder and appeared in court for the first time earlier this month.
