MISSING hiker Esther Dingley’s mum has described every day as an “excruciating hell” and says she is close to a breakdown.
Ria Bryant said: “I find it so hard to put into words how I have been feeling as I wait to find out what has happened to my daughter and best friend, our beautiful Esther.
“Each day has been nothing short of an excruciating hell for me, balancing on the edge of breaking down.
“Not knowing where Esther is or what has happened to her is destroying me and our family, as life seems almost impossible to cope with.
“Esther’s mission in life is to spread love and happiness, but now I am numb and scared that I will never feel those emotions again.”
Experienced hiker Esther, 37, originally from Durham, was last seen in the Pyrenees between France and Spain in November.

The police search in Spain and France is expected to restart in April or May.
But Spanish search and rescue experts have admitted they may have to wait longer if it snows heavily in the coming weeks and temperatures stay low.
Esther’s mum called her daughter’s disappearance “totally out of character” in December as she urged the public for help finding her.
