Police searching for missing 17 year-old Chloe Campbell have revealed they believe she is with wanted 32-year-old Craig Moran.
Craig Moran of Quinton, Lower Falinge, Rochdale, is wanted on suspicion of child abduction and on a recall to prison.
Chloe has been missing since Thursday 7 September 2017and was last sighted in a bank on Yorkshire Street in Rochdale town centre and then again at Blackpool train station, both times she was with Moran.
Chloe is described as white, approximately 5ft 3in tall and of slim build with long brown hair and blue eyes. She is known to wear a black leather-style jacket with fur around the collar, dark ripped jeans and tan ankle boots.
Despite best efforts of officers, Chloe and Moran have still not been found. Police are hoping the public may be able to help with the search so Chloe can be brought home safely.
Detective Inspector Joanne Reid from GMP’s Rochdale Borough said: “We have genuine concerns for Chloe’s safety, particularly whilst she is in the company of Moran. There is no suggestion that Chloe was forcibly taken, however we need to bring her home to ensure she is safe.
Moran has a history of violence and is wanted on a recall for prison for breaching the terms of his license. Due to Chloe’s age, he is also wanted on suspicion of child abduction.
