Two week anniversary appeal for missing woman in Milton Keynes

Alert message sent 01/03/2019 17:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Thames Valley Police is making an appeal for information on the two week anniversary since a woman went missing from Milton Keynes.

Leah Croucher, aged 19, was last seen in Buzzacott Lane in Furzton, just after 8.15am on Friday 15th February. She was walking in the direction of Loxbeare Drive and Chaffron Way.

Leah was reported missing by her family, who last saw her in Quantock Crescent, Emerson Valley, in Milton Keynes, at around 10pm on Thursday 14th February. She was reported missing to the police the following day (15/2).

Leah is white, slim, with below shoulder length brown hair and sometimes wears glasses.

She was last seen dressed in a black coat, skinny black jeans, black Converse high top shoes and carrying a small black rucksack.

Chief Inspector Neil Kentish said: “It has been two weeks since Leah Croucher went missing while she was walking to work.

“Leah was last seen in Buzzacott Lane in Furzton, where she was captured on CCTV at about 8.15am on Friday 15th February. I can confirm that two weeks on, we still have no further confirmed sightings of Leah since that time.

“Leah’s usual route to work would be via Buzzacott Lane and then onto Faraday Drive using the redways to travel north towards Kelvin Drive in Knowlhill. We know that this is the route that Leah took on both Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th February, however extensive CCTV work has shown that she did not arrive in Faraday Drive on the morning she went missing.

“Our new appeal today is to urge anyone who was in the area between Buzzacott Lane and Faraday Drive after 8.15am on Friday 15th February, or has dash-cam or CCTV footage from that day to come forward.

“I want to thank the public for all their help and assistance with this investigation so far, we have already received numerous calls but I would encourage anyone with new information to come forward.

“You can leave information via our dedicated website for this investigation, which is https://mipp.police.uk/operation/43H218A55-PO1/  call 101 or visit a police station, quoting investigation number 43190049929.

“We are keeping an open mind as to why and how Leah has disappeared, and therefore we have brought in resources from our Major Crime Unit to help with this missing person investigation.

“We continue our searches in Emerson Valley, Furzton and Shenley Lodge, and will be conducting anniversary checks in Buzzacott Lane, Loxbeare Drive, Faraday Drive and Knowlhill.

“Volunteers will also be helping police officers hand out leaflets across the city during the weekend.

“Leah’s family are devastated by her disappearance and are desperate to find her. They are being supported and updated by a specially trained Family Liaison Officers at this extremely difficult time. If anybody has any information as to Leah’s whereabouts please come forward and speak to us and help us find Leah.”
