Police are increasingly concerned about the welfare of Courtney Booth. We need to know where she is. She was last thought to be in the company of Tom Fallon, possibly in the Edinburgh area. Here is a picture of them together.

Officers believe the pair are currently together, possibly in the Edinburgh area.

A photo released by police shows Courtney in the company of a man named as Tom Fallon.

South Yorkshire Police said Courtney had never been missing before and concern was growing for her welfare.

Detective Chief Inspectpr Jo Bates, who is leading the search, said: ‘Courtney is known to have been in the York and Harrogate areas over the weekend… and was last seen at York train station at around 3.50pm on Sunday, boarding a train to Aberdeen.

‘There are a number of stops along the route and we are in the process of reviewing CCTV footage of each train station to establish where Courtney got off the train and where she then went.

‘It’s extremely unusual for her not to contact her family.

‘Clearly, we are extremely concerned for her welfare and would ask anyone who thinks they may have seen Courtney since she was reported missing to get in touch with us straight away.’

Courtney is described as white and slim with brown eyes and light brown shoulder-length hair.

Whilst in York, she was wearing blue skinny jeans, a black thigh length padded coat, with fur-lined hood, and grey and black jumper with a Nike emblem on the front in grey and white, and black trainers.
