Our podcast helps to highlight cases of missing young people when mental health issues could be either a cause or a consequence of their disappearance.
The first case we are featuring is that of Leah Croucher, who went missing on 15th February 2020. Here’s some further info on her case:
Name: Leah Croucher
Age: 19 at time of disappearance
She went missing on 15th Feb 2019 at some point when walking towards her work at around 8:15am (seen on cctv).
Location: Leah went missing after last being seen on Buzzacott Lane, Buckinghamshire
Appearance: slim, shoulder-length brown hair, no fringe, blue eyes, round face. 5’2’’ tall, sometimes wearing glasses.
Clothing: Wearing dark jacket, grey hoodie, white shirt, black trousers and black converse. Carrying a black rucksack.
Personality: Like to spend time at home. She was not a partier. Not the sort of person to disappear. She was young in her ways. A Harry Potter fan. Mum: very quiet and stays in her room. Creature of habit. If out, home by 1am.
Her parents today said from September 2018 the normally placid 19-year-old became ‘a little bit snappy’, slightly more argumentative and would go up to her room and sulk. But her parents put it down to normal teenage behaviour.
