Family of missing Leah Croucher make emotional plea

Leah, who is 21, has not been seen or heard from since she vanished on her way to work on February 15th 2019 in Milton Keynes.

Her heartbroken family believe she was taken against her will but still there is no news on what happened to Leah and as each day goes by, it just gets harder for them all.


In an emotional statement they said: ‘’It’s now been two years since our beautiful, wonderful daughter Leah, left for work and vanished without a trace. Missing. Gone. To say they have been a hard two years is an understatement. They have been the longest and toughest two years of our lives.”


On the day Leah went missing, her phone was switched off at 8.43am and the alarm was raised that night at 6pm by her worried family.


Despite repeated appeals, eyewitness testimony, and searches of nearby areas including lakes, no traces or clues of her disappearance were ever found.


But Leah’s family are more determined than ever to find out what happened to their daughter.

Mum of Leah Claire said, “Leah, you have never left our thoughts for a moment. It may seem that at times to people that we are not thinking about you, but that is not true.”


“We still have those awful questions screaming in our brains -where are you? What happened? We still dream about you. Dream that we find you or that you come home, out of the blue. That the police knock at the door to say they have found you, sometimes in the dream you are alive, sometimes you are not.”

“You are still the last thing we think about at night and the first thing we think about in the morning.”

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Howard, said: “I genuinely believe that there are people in the area that morning who will have seen Leah and who can help the investigation.

“It’s never too late to come forward with information to help our investigation, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you.


“I would like to remind people that members of the local community have very generously offered a £10,000 reward for information that leads to Leah being found. That reward is still available.’’


If you know what happened to Leah you can call police on 101 quoting reference number 43190049929, or Operation Dawlish. You can also leave information online at https://mipp.police.uk/operation/43H218A55-PO1/


It’s never too late. The smallest piece of information could lead to answers for the family.
