Wiltshire-wide appeal after teenager goes missing

By Barrie Hudson - 2 April 2024


An appeal for information about a missing teenager has been launched by Wiltshire Police.

Linh Hoang, 18, was reported missing from Trowbridge on 2 March, and was seen travelling to Paddington Station in London.

Detectives would like to identify the man she was seen with.
Linh, who celebrates her 18th birthday today - 2 April - was last seen in Trowbridge at 12.30pm on 2 March and failed to return to the care setting she was placed with - having left a note to indicate that she intended to leave.
Detectives have previously released CCTV footage taken of Linh in the company of a man she appears to know, travelling to Paddington Railway Station in London on March 2 - the day she was reported missing.
This is the last confirmed sighting of her. She is also thought to have links to the Gloucester area.
Det Insp Justin Downes said: “We are increasingly worried for the welfare of Linh. The fact that we have not heard anything from her for a month is deeply concerning and our priority is to ensure that this young woman is safe and well.
“We don’t know anything about the man she was seen travelling with, and while it does not appear that she was coerced in any way, we would also like to know his identity and speak to him about Linh.
“Anyone who recognises her, or the man she appears to have travelled to London with, is urgently asked to contact us."
Anybody with information is asked to call Wiltshire Police on 101, quoting log 54240024862.
Alternatively, they can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
