The family of a teenager who went missing on Christmas Day ‘with a very dangerous man’ have made an emotional appeal for her safe return.

Chloe Fewster was last seen in the Cranbrook Avenue area of Hull and fears for her welfare have increased following the 19-year-old’s disappearance.

Her distraught family say she went missing with a man who might be her boyfriend and claim he is pretending to be her on the internet.

However Humberside Police have not confirmed their claims.

Chloe’s mum Kerry McDougall has made several emotional appeal on social media pleading for anyone with information to help find her daughter.

In one Facebook post she claimed the man her daughter is with has been messaging her.

She wrote: “I thought I was messaging her for a week and she was replying back, when all the time he was messaging me and pretending to be Chloe saying she’s fine, when she wasn’t fine at all.

“Please don’t be fooled by him.”

In another post today she said: “If anyone thinks they’re being loyal to Chloe by not passing any info of her whereabouts on to me or the police – the best thing they can do is pass it on as she’s alone [we believe] with a very dangerous man.”

In a third post she pleaded: “Please if anyone sees her grab hold of her and ring the police or me if your a women just ring the police.”

On Sunday, police appealed directly to her to get in touch while praising the public’s “phenomenal” response to their search, Hull Live reports.

“I would like to thank everyone who has provided information as to Chloe’s whereabouts and to all of those who have shared our appeal.

“The response has been phenomenal and so many people have been very generous in giving their time over the holiday period to try and help us to locate Chloe.

“We want to reassure all those who are concerned that we will continue our search until we speak to, or see Chloe directly and are satisfied that she is genuinely safe and well.
