A HEARTBROKEN older sister broke down in tears as she made an emotional appeal for missing her Leah Croucher.
Leah, 19, was last seen on Valentine’s Day in Milton Keynes, before she vanished the following morning.
CCTV captured the finance clerk walking to work on the morning of her disappearance, but she failed to show up.
Jade told This Morning, her sister was “very young in her ways” and “didn’t want to go out with her friends partying”.
But when questioned on why she might have vanished, Jade struggled to contain her tears.
Pleading for more information, she said: “Heading to work and then vanishing into thin air, doesn’t happen. This is bizarre.
“I know in my heart Leah wouldn’t do that to the people she loves the most.
I can’t explain how bad it is
“Everyday it becomes harder, her birthday was unbearable. Until we have answers until we know Leah’s safe, we won’t rest.”
Crying, and struggling to speak, she added: “You think in time things will get easier, but they don’t. It get’s harder.
“I can’t explain how bad it is.”
Thames Valley Police Chief Inspector Neil Kentish previously said Leah walks from her house in Emerson Valley to work at a finance company in Knowlhill every day.
“She seems completely normal while she’s walking to work,” he said, adding: “For all intents and purposes it’s her usual routine walking to work.”
Leah is described as white and of slim build, with below shoulder-length brown hair, and sometimes wears glasses.
She was last seen wearing a black coat, black skinny jeans and black Converse high top shoes, and was carrying a small black rucksack.
Days after her disappearance, 50 police officers knocked on 4,000 doors in Milton Keynes as part of the huge search.
Cops even searched a lake near her hometown but failed to find anything of significance.
Her parents told the show: “We weren’t aware of a relationship before she went missing.
“We found out since she was seeing somebody, but that person’s been spoken to.”
Mum Claire, added: “Truthfully I don’t believe she’s ran away. There’s no way she’s ran away.
“Something bad has happened. And there are some people in the world that know where she is.
“And if the worst has happened, I want my daughter’s body back.”

In her last emotional appeal, Claire told Leah: “Nan and Grandad are beside themselves with worry.
“Your brother and sister, your aunties and uncles are worried.
“Everyone wants you to be safe Leah. Please come home.
“You are not in any trouble because we love you so much. We want our beautiful, wonderful little girl to come home.”
