    ITV's This Morning show refuses to help with appeal for missing Milton Keynes girl Leah Croucher
    "Leah's sister Jade emailed the This Morning crew at ITV to ask if they could put out a plea for information about Leah on their huge social media platform.

    But she received a reply saying: “Unfortunately this is not something we can do.”
    [...]
    She sent them a reply stating: “Your email shows a complete lack of compassion and care.”
    [...]
    “We then have to deal with constant rejection from people and companies who are completely unwilling to help.”

    The Citizen approached This Morning and ITV planners for a comment on Friday. We are still awaiting their reply."

    MK CITIZEN a few minutes ago:

    New hope in the search for missing Milton Keynes girl Leah Croucher

    A massive surge of national publicity could this week provide a breakthrough into the seven month search for missing Leah Croucher.
    Bosses of ITV's This Morning show have now agreed to broadcast Leah's case to millions of viewers in the hope it will prompt a vital clue.

    Tomorrow (Wednesday) the case will receive a further nationwide boost when it is featured on Crimewatch Roadshow on BBC at 9.15am but will also be available on iPlayer.

    They will be appealing for anybody who has seen Leah in the past seven months, or anybody who saw something strange happening in Milton Keynes on February 15, the morning the 19-year-old vanished without trace.

    Leah's family and friends have been campaigning constantly to raise awareness of their home-loving daughter's disappearance, but cannot understand why the baffling and highly unusual case does not make headlines in national newspapers and news channels.

    D/Supt Andy Howard will appear on @BBCCrimewatch tomorrow morning from 9.15am to appeal for information to trace missing woman Leah Croucher.



    Leah went missing from Milton Keynes in February this year.

    More from the MK Citizen:

    Leah's family and friends have been campaigning constantly to raise awareness of their home-loving daughter's disappearance, but cannot understand why the baffling and highly unusual case does not make headlines in national newspapers and news channels.

    “Suzy Lamplugh's disappearance was reported constantly. Everybody knows her name. But there are still millions of people who have never heard of Leah Croucher – and some of these people may know something important,” said a source.

    Leah's father John, who lives on Emerson Valley, has welcomed the publicity surge. He said: “We pray that this will bring us the answers we need. It has to. Because we can't go much longer without knowing, without going insane.”

    The Citizen has been in contact with the editor of This Morning show, Martin Frizell, who has a long history of working with the Missing People charity.

    He said he was moved by the family's “determination and passion” to find Leah.

    “Someone is reported missing in the UK every 90 seconds, thankfully 99% are resolved but that still leaves 2,500 people who vanish each year," Mr Frizell told the MK Citizen.

    "We can't cover every case but Leah's is deserving of our attention.”

    He added: "I plan to put our ex-Detective Mark Williams Thomas onto the mystery to film the story and give it some national attention.”

    Mark Williams Thomas made the Jimmy Savile documentary for ITV and has investigated the Madeline McCann and Jill Dando cases for Mr Frizell.

    Leah's sister Jade said: “For the past seven months my family and I have campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness in the hope that someone, somewhere has information on where Leah may be or what could have happened to her."

    She added: “I cannot express to you how difficult this has been. We battle day in, day out with the thoughts running through our minds of the harm Leah could have come to and yet we still keep pushing to ensure people do not forget.

    “We are not afraid to admit that we do desperately need help. Alone we cannot raise the awareness that Leah deserves.”

    Well, that's made me cry. No new information at all. Appeal for Leah's whereabouts the night of 14th from 6:15 - 7:15pm, and again asking who the girl was crying at the lake 9:30 - 11am on 15th.

    Should be on BBC iPlayer later on.

    Seeing Leah’s mum smile as she talked about Leah with tears streaming down her face tore at me. No new info but it does bring how young and how loved she is back into the forefront. I hope someone comes forward with info - anything at all, however silly or small or massive, please pass it on to the police.

    For anyone watching later on catch up,Leah is the first item on crimewatch.
    It was moving to see pictures of Leah's bedroom and parents speaking about her.
    There was also an appeal for any information about where she went on the previous evening when she had said she was visiting a friend .

    People on social media are asking if any new searches are going on. The programme has certainly reignited a desire to help in any way that people can. I wonder if there are would be value in arranging searches to look for the discarded top or mobile, for example, or if coordinating volunteers would be too much of a headache for the police. Seems a shame to miss an opportunity.

    Just caught up, thanks for the info Skigh re it being the first item.

    The reconstruction showed the door, which is different to the one we originally saw on google. Makes sense now the discussion re leaving the key inside ( which would not be the case with a yale lock ).

    CC says LC got home at 5.45pm, left at 6pm and returned home at 7.30pm - she then went to her room and went to bed ? This differs from previous information we have been given.
