"Appears police are searching land to the west of the Aylesham Road."
Leah Southwell, 18, described the scene as officers arrived yesterday.
She said: "The whole road was swarmed with police.
"Last night about 10 o'clock, I looked out my window and there were sirens, blue lights all down my road.
"At around fourish there were two vans, a little van and a squad car, and there was a fire engine as well.
"Nothing ever happens around here.
"It's just shocking to be honest."
