The sister of a woman who has not been seen since she got into a silver van with a man says the family are ‘breaking’ under the strain.

Katie Kenyon has not been seen since Friday, April 22, and Lancashire Police says it is becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare after the ‘out of character’ disappearance. 

Officers say they believe a woman matching the 33 year old’s description got into a silver Ford Transit in Todmorden Road, Burnley, with a man two days ago.

Katie’s sister Sarah posted online that: ‘It is now a waiting game, we have done everything we can, searched everywhere, contacted everyone.

‘This is breaking us all and we are all so greatly appreciated for everyone’s help! You’ve all been amazing.’

She has not been seen since and police have arrested a 50-year-old man from Burnley in connection with her disappearance.

Lancashire Police says the man is helping with its investigation, and is appealing for information from members of the public.

Police say the vehicle, which had registration MT57 FLC was then driven 17 miles into the countryside, near to the village of Bolton by Bowland in the Ribble Valley.

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

Detective Chief Inspector Al Davies, of Lancashire Police’s 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.
