Missing teenager Leah Croucher, 19, was having an affair with an engaged man when she vanished the n


Missing Leah Croucher was having an affair with an engaged man before her disappearance, her family said today.

The 19-year-old disappeared the day after Valentine's Day on February 15 and despite a widespread public appeal to find her, nobody has come forward with information.

Leah's mum Claire has now broken her silence to talk about the relationship with the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Mrs Croucher, of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, said: 'It started in the summer of last year. She was talking about this man all the time.

'It was X this and X that... it was obvious she had a soft spot for him. She'd go and see him in the evenings, paying £13 each way for a taxi.

Leah Croucher, 19, was last seen in Furzton, Milton Keynes just after 8.15am on February 15 (right). Her family last saw her at around 10pm the evening before.

'It just wasn't like Leah to do things like that - she'd always been such a home-loving person and didn't like going out much.

'Then we found out he was engaged.

'I remember saying to Leah: 'Don't you go falling for him, he will never be yours.' I was under the impression that she'd stopped seeing him then.'

Mrs Croucher and her husband John believe Leah could have been deceiving them, and said they believed she had secretly stayed the night with him at a local Travelodge.

'Her behaviour changed, ever so slightly.

'I didn't really take much notice at the time but now, having had eight and a half months to think about it, I realise she had become a bit more moody, which was totally out of character.'

Leah was last seen by her parents on the evening of February 14 after she told them she had been going to see a friend.

Leah was then seen again on CCTV the day after, heading to work in Milton Keynes, but has not been seen since.

Earlier this month police searched the Blue Lagoon lake in Milton Keynes, after a member of the public described spotting a grey hooded top in the water.

Leah was wearing a distinctive grey 'Stewartby' taekwondo hoodie with a colourful logo at the time she went missing.

My view: I hope the young girl is ok, it's so sad, some teenage girls don't confide in their parents about who they're dating. Girls confide in their parents less as they approach 13 or 14, but showing her you understand will encourage her to confide more.
