Police fear for missing teens safety who was last seen Valentine’s day

Can you help Police who are urgently concerned for the safety of a teenager that has not been seen since Valentine’s Day.

Leah is a family girl she has never been missing before which is completely out of character.

Her family and police fear for her safety. Leah Croucher was last seen on Thursday, February 14th.

It is very out of character for Leah to go missing despite being missing for 40 days police have not received a single confirmed sighting of her.

The 19-year-old was last seen walking along a road in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, on February 15.

Her heartbroken family have since made an emotional appeal for news about her disappearance at a press conference.

She was last seen by her family at 10pm on Valentine’s Day in Quantock Crescent, Emerson Valley.

The following day (Friday 15th February) she was seen on CCTV in Buzzacott Lane in Furzton, just after 8.15am.

Police are still appealing for witnesses and a £5,000 reward has been donated anonymously in the hope it’ll encourage someone to come forward.

Mrs Croucher described her daughter as family orientated, and as “a creature of habit who loves home comforts.”

With tears welling up, Mrs Croucher bravely appealed for her daughter’s safe return.

“Leah is a bright, confident and loving 19-year-old. She loves fantasy fiction, both reading and writing and publishing it herself.

“She loves watching DVD boxsets in her room. She doesn’t really like pubs or clubbing much and generally comes home by 1am at the latest of she does go out.

“She is a family orientated person and is caring about her family and friends.

“She is kind and generous and always helps people anyway she can. She loves Taekwondo and attends classes with her dad.

“We are going on a family holiday which Leah was really looking forward to – she had helped us pick out the hotel at the airport the night before.

“She is a creature of habit, who loves her home comforts.

“Leah, if you are able to see or hear this, please get in touch – see me as I read this, or better still come home. Please, please – we love you so much.

“We would like to thank family and friends for all the support in this impossible time in our lives – and thank the police, PCOs, dog teams, helicopters – everybody for their continued efforts to bring our little girl home.

“We wish you all the luck in the universe.”
