“As with all missing persons enquiries we are doing everything we can to locate Megan and make sure she is safe and well.

“Her disappearance and the fact that she has not had any contact with her family and friends for almost five days now is extremely unlike her and adds to our concern.

Specially trained officers are offering support to Megan’s family at this extremely difficult time.

Police Dog Blue and his handler from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit found a vulnerable teenager on Wednesday (October 18).

Officers were called to an address in Friday Bridge, Cambridgeshire at around 10.45pm after concerns were raised about a teenager who had gone missing.

Due to concerns for her welfare, PD Blue and his handler were also called to assist with the search.

German Shepherd Blue was deployed and began searching the local area. Whilst going down a nearby lane, Blue led his handler into an area of woodland and undergrowth.

It was here that the pair found the missing teenager. They were then able to provide immediate care before other officers arrived to take her home.

Inspector Iain Clark, who is the head of the BCH Dog Unit, said: “The officers had numerous places to search and I am glad PD Blue and his handler were able to provide assistance, which saw the teenager safely found within a short period of time.

“I am proud of their work and this is another great example of how the BCH Dog Unit can support other officers around the three counties.”

Police Pay

A man who admitted racially harassing security guards at student halls has been served with a Community Order and a fine.

The 22-year-old from Luton pleaded guilty to two counts of racially aggravated harassment and criminal damage at Luton Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday). The sentencing followed an incident in student halls in Luton on 24 September.

Hate Crime Sergeant James Hart said: “This was an unacceptable incident which was extremely distressing for the victims. We won’t tolerate hate crime in our county as everyone has the right to live free from fear or harassment.

“We hope this case will provide reassurance to victims that we take hate crime offences very seriously. Victims should not have to suffer such abuse and should feel comfortable reporting their experiences to the authorities.”

The man was handed a 12-week curfew with electronic tag and must pay £100 compensation to the victims.
