A children's author was reported missing from her home yesterday- hours after another children's writer living nearby also disappeared.
Detectives today launched a manhunt for Natalya Shieff after she was reported missing.
The mysterious disappearance marks the second author search to be launched by officers in the area within the space of 24 hours, after Helen Bailey was reported missing on Sunday.
The two women live barely 15 miles apart and their sudden disappearances were reported the day after each other - prompting a major police hunt to find them.
Ms Shieff - whose profile page on LinkedIn describes her as a writer of poetry, music and children's books, as well as being a charity volunteer - was last seen leaving a gym on Sunday afternoon.
Police said the 38-year-old was last seen leaving the Fit4less gym in High Street, Hatfield, Herts., at around 1pm on Sunday.
She was described as being around 5ft 5ins tall, of thin build, and with dark brown shoulder length hair.
