On March 28, Chelsie wrote on social media: ‘I really underestimated this current situation, and I never really make a Facebook post but I wanted too tonight.
‘I don’t watch the news because I think it makes me feel worse but I see things and read about them online and it gets scarier by the day.
‘I think everyone is going through something at the moment even if it means just being lonely for a second.
‘I hope all of my friends and family are safe, and I hope everyone is keeping well.
‘I am only a message away if anyone ever wants a chat, these times only make you think about what is important.’
Chelsie’s mother, Dawn Howell, commented on the post that she should move home if she felt lonely.
Dawn wrote: ‘Don’t be lonely, see if someone will have your cat and come here
‘I worry about you.’
But Chelsie replied: ‘I’m not lonely! I just meant if anyone is.’
Another friend wrote: ‘Aww you’re so cute Chel, we love you loads. Yours and Liv’s videos are keeping us all going on our chat.’

In another post, she asked her friends to sign a petition urging the government to include commissions when calculating furlough payments.
After Norfolk Police decided to call of searches Great Yarmouth policing commander, Superintendent Mike Britton, said: ‘We’ve carried out extensive local searches involving dedicated search teams, dog units, National Police Air Service, the coastguard, RNLI and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue and the coastguard helicopter
‘Unfortunately there has been no sign of Chelsie and she hasn’t used her bank accounts or social media accounts since the early hours of Monday morning.
‘This, combined with CCTV inquiries, leads us to believe the most likely scenario is that she has entered the water.
He thanked the local community for helping in the search but asked them to keep maintaining social distance.
