MISSING: Danielle Catton

Danielle Catton (19) has been missing from her home in Burnley Road, Padiham, since 1pm last Friday, February 14th.

She last made contact with her family on Sunday afternoon.

Police are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare and are urging anybody that has seen Danielle or knows of her current whereabouts to contact them.

Sgt Michael Smith said: “Although streetwise, Danielle is vulnerable as she has learning difficulties. It is unusual for her to be missing for this length of time and I would ask people to be vigilant and to report any sightings of Danielle to police on 101.

“We believe she is likely to be in the Burnley area.”

Danielle is described as being around 5ft 2in. tall, slim build with shoulder length dark brown hair. She was last seen wearing a black leather jacket and black trainers.
