The reward to help find a 21-year-old woman who went missing two years ago has been doubled to £20,000. Leah Croucher has been missing from her home in Quantock Crescent, Milton Keynes since February 15, 2019. Two anonymous donors offered a £10,000 reward for information that led to Leah in 2019.Now, following a fresh appeal for information on the second anniversary of her disappearance, further offers of financial support have been made, putting the reward total money at £20,000.
The last confirmed sighting of Leah, who was 19 at the time, was on the morning she went missing.Her image was captured on CCTV in Buzzacott Lane in Furzton at 8.16am. She hasn't been seen since.
Her family said in a statement:
They continued: "We can only hope that the doubling of the reward amount will yield results and finally lead to information allowing us to find what happened to Leah that fateful day. There are still so many questions and barely any answers.
"Again we are asking you to please share this information far and wide, so that everyone is aware of the increase to £20,000. During these times of COVID crisis, we hope that the person or persons who have the information we need will now finally come forward and inform the police.”
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Howard, said: "I am incredibly grateful, as I know Leah’s family are, and would like to thank all the donors for their contributions in offering this reward, which we hope will encourage anyone with the right piece of information to come forward and speak to us."
"Since Leah went missing on 15th February 2019 there has been a fantastic response from the public, and particularly the local community in Milton Keynes. These donations show how committed the local community are to helping find Leah and providing the answers that her family need and deserve. Hopefully this is the incentive that somebody out there needs to come forward.
