Man arrested as police hunt missing woman Katie Kenyon

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 25th April 2022

A man has been arrested in connection with the ongoing search for missing woman Katie Kenyon.

Katie, 33, was last seen getting into a van with a man on the morning of Friday 22 April and hasn’t been seen since.

Her family say that her disappearance is ‘out of character’ and police are growing ‘increasingly concerned’.

Lancashire Police are appealing for members of the public who have any information or dash cam footage to help find Katie.

Enquiries so far have found that a woman matching Katie’s description left an address on Todmorden Road in Burnley with a man, and travelled to the Bolton by Bowland area in a silver Ford Transit with the registration MT57 FLC.

Katie Kenyon is described as white, 33 years old, 5ft 9in tall, and was last wearing a blue cardigan, light blue and white top, black leggings and flip flops.

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


Det Chief Insp 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.”
