Today, COPS, in search of a young man who went missing three years ago, has released a gruesome image discovered by WebSleuths.
Detectives have shared an old photo of a black man, discovered on a mobile phone, in the hope that it will help them locate the missing Leah Croucher.
Leah, 19, went missing on February 15, 2019 while working in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
The photo, taken at 10.51am that day, shows a man dressed in full black on Lake Ferguson.
It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring.
The picture shows babies feeding ducks, taken two and a half hours after the young man’s last CCTV appearance this morning.
At 8.34am, more than two hours had passed since he left his phone network in the vicinity of the lake.
Andy Howard, Thames Valley Police’s chief detective, said the picture was “of Leah.”
However, he said locals must have seen a young woman who was “upset” this morning and was using her phone.
“The concept we are releasing today is not of a high standard, but I hope that someone will recognize himself in this picture,” he said.
“I especially want to identify the person in the picture who is dressed in black.”
DCI Howard said eyewitnesses at the lake described “seeing a young girl in black clothes who looked upset or upset, and possibly used her phone,” DCI Howard said. Said.
He added, “Despite previous appeals, we have so far failed to establish the identity of this woman and so if you believe she is you or you know who she is, please contact the police.” Do it. “
“I know it was three years ago, but this photo was taken the day before Valentine’s Day, and just before the half-time break from school, and so maybe you remember being in that area.” Be it, or you’re walking in the area. Regularly. “
‘Barn’s picture is not Leah’
It follows a satellite image of a “girl in a red blanket” appearing on Google Earth, showing a girl resembling a teenager.
This cool photo was taken a month after Leah’s disappearance, near an unused warehouse in Eaton Bray, 18 miles from Milton Keynes.
But DCI Howard said police could “clearly rule out that this is Leah.”
“A detailed search of the property and warehouse has found no evidence that Layyah is attached to or present at this location,” he said.
“Leah used to go to work on Naal Hill most mornings. On Friday, February 15, she was seen on CCTV at 8.16am in Buzzcat Lane, Furston, so we know for sure that she was on her way. Was gone. “
After that, it is thought to have passed through Tellytubby Hill on Dulverton Drive, along with Loxbeare Drive at Chanel Lodge, before heading north around Lake Furston.
“The area is a well-populated residential area where people travel, run schools or exercise,” said DCI Howard.
“Given how busy the area is, it’s hard to believe that this CCTV clip of Layyah at 8.16am was the last time we found out that it had been seen.”
Police know Layyah did not function normally on the day she went missing. Israr also surrounded the time between 6pm and 7.15pm before Layyah left her home.
“I really believe there are people in the area this morning who have seen Layyah and who can help with the investigation,” said DCI Howard.
“It’s been three years since Layyah went missing, but the fact that we’re getting information about Valentine’s Day and her movements on February 15, which was the last day before half-time, means Hopefully, these are the dates that people can remember more easily. “
He says his family lives with “constant anxiety” – adding: “It’s never too late to move on.”
A reward of up to 20,000 is being offered for information leading to the discovery of Leah.
