Volunteers Wanted to Help in York Search for Missing Megan
6:55am 29th January 2014
People in York are being asked to volunteer to help in the search for missing student Megan Roberts.
The charity Missing People is holding a Search Day in the city where posters will be given out for businesses and for people to put up at home. People will also be asked to share messages the charity will put out on it's Facebook page and on @MissingPeople on Twitter.
Missing People Local Campaigns Manager Martin Crosby said
“Our thoughts are with Megan’s family at this very difficult time and we hope that our efforts will help to bringing her home safely.”
“Please join the search – get in touch and come and help us if you are in the Lendal Bridge area on Wednesday and help us spread awareness of the appeal for Megan."
If you can spare some time to help give out posters to raise awareness of Megan's disappearance, then you should meet at the BHS on Coney Street. You can also call Martin Crosby from Missing People on 07872 601681 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
North Yorkshire Police will continue their search for Megan today with underwater search teams returning to the River Ouse to continue the search which began there yesterday.
Police will also continue to examine CCTV footage of Megan's last movements. She was seen with a group of friends on the corner of Rougier Street and Lendal Bridge at 2.20am on Thursday 23rd January. A few minutes later, the group is seen on the other side of the bridge by Museum Street, but Megan was not with them.
Megan is described as white, around 5ft 6in tall, of medium build with long dark brown hair. When she was last seen she was wearing a cream knee length dress which had large brown and orange flowers on it and black plimsoll type shoes
Anyone with information which can help officers to find Megan is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 1 – and pass information to the Force Control Room.
The appeal to trace Megan Roberts is also being supported by the Missing People charity. Information from the public - or from Megan herself - can be passed on free of charge and in confidence by calling 116 000.
