Missing York Student Triggers Police Appeal

Police have said they are very concerned for the safety of a young female university student who has not been seen since a night out in York more than four days ago.

The mother of 20-year-old Megan Roberts reported her daughter's disappearance after a friend raised the alarm when she failed to hear from her.

Megan, who is originally from Wetherby and is studying at York St John University, was last seen in Popworld nightclub, on George Hudson Street, at around 2am on Thursday, January 23.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire police said: "Nobody has heard from Megan since, which is very out of character and officers are very concerned for her safety."

Megan is described as around 5ft6in tall, of medium build with long dark brown hair.

When she was last seen she was wearing a cream knee-length dress which had large brown and orange flowers on it and black plimsoll-type shoes.

Police are appealing for anyone who has seen Megan since the early hours of Thursday or knows where she is to contact them urgently.

They are also appealing to Megan herself to contact her friends, family or the police to let them know she is safe.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
