A missing Blackburn student’s friends and family are running a social media campaign to help Greater Manchester Police find her.

Natalie Phillips, 21, was dropped off at Blackburn station at around 6pm on Friday April 20 and took the train into Manchester.

The Salford University student was planning to go to the Frog and Bucket Comedy Club on Oldham Street.

Her family received a text message from her at 8pm on the same night, but she has not been heard from since.

Miss Phillips is described as 5 foot 5 tall with dyed blonde hair and between 12 and 13 stone.

At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing jeans and a black hoody with ‘Talie’ embroidered on the back.

She was also carrying a small suitcase on rollers and a black Quicksilver rucksack with white writing on it.

It has been alleged that the Blackburn train station did not have CCTV switched on on Friday night.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancashire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
