Her husband believes the motorbike could now be in Leeds after a potential sighting in Harehills.

The woman's husband, who does not wish to be named, said: "She worked a long day yesterday, a long day today and a long day tomorrow. The shifts I work mean that I won’t see her until Friday.

"She’s had to arrange lifts to get to and from work. It’s impacted on other people too that try and help her out."

Anyone with information on the motorbike's whereabouts should contact West Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting reference number 13210145653.
