POLICE are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 26-year-old woman.

Louise Holohan was last seen leaving Manchester Airport on Friday at around 4pm, and it was thought she may have been making her way to an address in Padiham.

However she failed to turn up and has not been seen since.

She also has connections to the Bootle area of Merseyside and the Wigan and Leigh areas of Greater Manchester.

Last known sighting of Louise Holohan

Sergeant Andy Horne, of Blackburn Police, said: “It is completely out of character for Louise to go missing and we, and her friends and family, are becoming extremely worried about her.

“We would now ask that anybody who has seen her gets in touch as soon as possible. In particular we would ask anybody who was in terminal one of Manchester Airport on Friday evening to cast their minds back. Louise was carrying quite a distinctive red handbag and somebody may recall having seen her.”

She is described as white, of slim build, with very long blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a white, lace crop top, black skinny jeans, a black Monte Claire jacket and black pumps. She was carrying a red handbag and a pink hand luggage-sized suitcase.

Anybody with information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact us on 101, quoting log number 1593 of September 8th.
