Police are appealing for help from the public in locating a 19 year old York girl currently missing from the Grimsby area.
Katie Free was in the care of a treatment centre in Grimsby and went missing in Cleethorpes at around 1245hrs on Saturday 13 December 2014.
Katie has not been seen since then and police are growing concerned for her welfare due to an existing medical condition.
Katie is described as being white and of pale complexion with blue eyes and red hair often worn in a ponytail. She is 5ft 7ins tall and of thin build and is a spectacle wearer.
When last seen she was wearing black leggings with a burgundy hooded jacket with a white logo on the front. She was said to be carrying a black tote bag and wearing burgundy shoes.
Katie is believed to be in the company of her boyfriend Will Gilligan (pictured) who is from the Darlington area and it is thought they may have travelled together to the North Yorkshire or Darlington area.
Detective Inspector Jim Fairgrieve overseeing the search for Katie said;
“Katie has been missing before and she was located safely and promptly.
“Katie’s welfare is our main priority and our aim is to achieve that result again and as quickly as possible. As time moves on our concern is growing due to her ongoing health issues. It is important that we locate Katie so that we can ensure she receives the support she urgently needs. We are appealing to Katie to make contact, either with her family or the emergency services at the earliest opportunity. We would also ask the public to help us by calling us to inform us if they see Katie and provide us with details of her whereabouts.”
Katie or anyone with information as to her whereabouts is asked to call Humberside Police on 101 quoting log number 358 of 13 December 2014.
