Detectives probing the disappearance of a woman today continued to question a man who is in custody.

The police first appealed for information over the missing Burnley woman Katie Kenyon on Sunday, April 24.

She was reported missing from home, with the family of the 33-year-old saying her disappearance was out of character.

Here is everything we know so far about missing Burnley woman Katie Kenyon


The details provided

At around 9.30am on Friday, April 22, a woman matching Katie’s description left an address in Todmorden Road, Burnley, with a man and travelled in a silver Ford Transit van with the registration MT57 FLC to Bolton-by-Bowland.

She has not been seen since and police are appealing to anyone who was in that area and may have seen Katie, either with someone or on her own, or who saw or has dashcam footage of a van matching the description to come forward and contact them.

Katie is white, 5ft 9inches, with shoulder length hair. She was last seen wearing a blue cardigan, light blue and white top, black leggings and flip flops.

An arrest has been made

A man, aged 50, from Burnley, has been arrested in connection with the investigation and is currently helping police with enquiries. 

So far, Lancashire Police have not provided a reason for the man's arrest.

What else have the police said?

Detective Chief Inspector Al Davies, of the Force Major Investigation Team, said: "Katie’s disappearance is out of character and her family are understandably very worried.

"We are doing all we can to try and find her and I would appeal to anyone who has any information, however insignificant you may think it is, to come forward and contact us.

"I would especially like to hear from anyone who was in Bolton by Bowland or the surrounding area and saw anything suspicious to get in touch.

"Did you see a woman matching Katie’s description, either alone or with a man? Did you see the silver Transit van or might you have dashcam footage which shows it?

“While we have arrested someone in connection with our investigation, I am very much keeping an open mind as to what has happened and I have a team of officers and staff working hard to try and find Katie and return her to her family.

"You could help with that so please do come forward and speak to us as your information could prove crucial."
