‘I live next door and I’m a close family friend, she’s not one to just disappear, it’s very odd.
‘She’s a very in girl, she is very family orientated, she’s got a boyfriend – he’s ever so nice – and a few friends. She’s just a lovely girl and this is so out of character for her.
‘She is 18, but she is very tiny and very slim that she probably looks about 15 in reality.’
