The sister of a teenager who went missing three months ago has a heartbreaking plea for information.
Leah Croucher, 19, vanished on her way to work in Milton Keynes on February 15.
Despite extensive police searches and poster and media appeals there have been no confirmed sightings of Leah and no leads to her whereabouts.
On Facebook her older sister Jade wrote: "She seemingly vanished with absolutely no trace.
"She is a stunning girl, with a heart of gold.
"A family that love and adore her, friends who think the world of her and many many other people who’s lives she has touched in one way or another.
"She has a bright future and at the age of only 19 a long future ahead of her at that.
"She is intelligent and sensible, kind and caring. She is essentially everything that you would want in a little sister.
"Everything that would make anyone proud to say she is their little sister!
"I’ve always believed in time being a great healer but sadly on this occasion my belief in that has most certainly changed.
"As it stands at the moment the more time that passes the stronger my fears grow.
"With each day that passes my sadness deepens. My heart breaks to see the pain that my family are feeling and I know in my heart that Leah would never want to see her family in this much agony!
"So here I am again, 3 months later but still with the same questions that I had on day 1.
"Is my sister safe? What / Who stopped her from reaching work on 15th February? Where could she be?"
The last confirmed sighting of Leah was on Buzzacott Lane in Furzton, Milton Keynes just after 8.15am on Friday February 15. She was walking in the direction of Loxbeare Drive and Chaffron Way, which is her route to work.
Thames Valley Police received reports from three witnesses of a female that could possibly have been Leah by Furzton Lake later in the morning of February 15 between 9.30am and 11.15am.
The first witness, who was walking alone along the wooden boardwalk on the eastern side of the lake, saw a female between 9.30am and 10am.
The witness described her as white, aged approximately 20, around 5ft 4ins tall, with dark brown, shoulder length hair.
She was dressed in a black mid-thigh length coat, with the front zip undone, dark trousers and what appeared to be white earbuds in both ears.
She described the female as using her phone, and appeared to be typing using both thumbs.
The witness walked past her and said ‘Excuse me’, to which the woman replied ‘Oh sorry’.
The other two witnesses, who were walking anti-clockwise around Furzton Lake together, saw the woman between 10am and 10.15am near the sports pavilion, and described her as being visibly angry, upset and crying.
They then saw the woman again around 20 minutes later just after passing the Premier Inn, and described her to be in a calmer state. They also believe she may have been speaking to somebody on her mobile phone.
In February the police searched the lake but found no clues. Leah's mobile phone and bank account has not been used since she disappeared.
Leah’s family last saw her in Quantock Crescent, Emerson Valley, in Milton Keynes at around 10pm on Thursday February 14. Leah was reported missing to police the next day.
