Storm Emma: ‘Concern is growing’ for missing girl

Police are searching for a teenage girl who disappeared during Storm Emma.

Lucy Duncan, 19, set off in her car just before the Met Office’s red weather warning came into force on Thursday.

She left her home in Horton, Swansea, at about 11.55am and withdrew money from HSBC in Swansea about an hour later.

The last reported sighting of the teenager’s car, a 14-plate Volkswagen Take Up, was in the Hereford area at about 3pm the same day, after she travelled on the A465 through Hirwaun and Brynmawr.

It is possible that she also visited Rochdale during the weekend.

“Concern is growing for Lucy’s welfare particularly due to the recent snow and poor driving conditions,” a spokesperson for the police force said.

She is described as being 5ft 4in to 5ft 5in, and was wearing a black T-shirt, black trousers and a bright red jacket.
