Trudi Weller, 19, from Keighley in West Yorkshire, has been missing since Friday. Her mother reports that she went to a photographic shoot in Leeds on Wednesday with a well-known glamour photographer, whose name we have been legally advised not to publish. Trudi is a popular girl, whose modelling included a shoot for John Lewis and a popular series for the Leeds United website, modelling their new kit. She has always insisted that she would never do glamour modelling, but her mother reports that, after breaking up with her boyfriend, 36-year-old investment banker Clive Burchfield, Trudi, a lively 5’5″blonde, has struggled to make ends meet.
The police have interviewed the photographer, who insists that she never arrived at his Studio. He is pursuing Trudi’s mother, Amy, for damages in relation to breach of contract. Trudi was seen getting on the train at 13.01 by her former classmate Rachel Black. Trudi should have arrived at Leeds by 13.28, ready for her appointment at 2.00pm.
‘Trudi was preoccupied. She had money worries and she never handled money well,’ said Amy. ‘All the same, she’s not the type of girl to do anything daft,’ she added, her eyes filling with tears.
