A man has been arrested over the disappearance of a missing 33-year-old woman as police launch a major search.

Katie Kenyon, 33, is believed to have left an address in Burnley on Friday morning and travelled with a man in a van to Bolton by Bowland – an area within the Forest of Bowland beauty spot.

Her family say the appearance is out of character and are extremely concerned for her wellbeing.

Lancashire Constabulary’s Force Major Investigation Team today issued an appeal for anyone who may have seen Katie or who has dashcam footage to come forward, regardless of how insignificant it may appear, Lancashire Live reports.

Katie has not been seen since travelling in the silver Ford Transit van.

She is described at white, 33, 5ft 9ins, with shoulder length blond hair and was last seen wearing a blue cardigan, light blue and white top, black leggings and flip flops.

Police today said that a 50-year-old man from Burnley has been arrested in connection with the investigation and “is currently helping police with enquiries”.

The force did not confirm what offence the man has been arrested on suspicion of.

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.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting log 800 of April 24th or use the Major Incident Public Portal.
