Courtney was reported missing after she failed to go back to her home in Stainforth, Doncaster on Saturday September 22. It is believed she is with Tom Fallon (right)
Police say inquiries carried out so far across Doncaster and North Yorkshire suggest that Courtney is in company with a 25-year-old man named as Tom Fallon from the Harrogate area.
Officers believe the pair are currently together, possibly in the Edinburgh area.
South Yorkshire Police said Courtney had never been missing before and concern was growing for her welfare.
Detective Chief Inspectpr Jo Bates, who is leading the search, said: ‘Courtney is known to have been in the York and Harrogate areas over the weekend… and was last seen at York train station at around 3.50pm on Sunday, boarding a train to Aberdeen.
Police are appealing for anyone who saw the pair or knows about Courtney’s whereabouts to contact them urgently
‘There are a number of stops along the route and we are in the process of reviewing CCTV footage of each train station to establish where Courtney got off the train and where she then went.
‘It’s extremely unusual for her not to contact her family.
‘Clearly, we are extremely concerned for her welfare and would ask anyone who thinks they may have seen Courtney since she was reported missing to get in touch with us straight away.’
Courtney is described as white and slim with brown eyes and light brown shoulder-length hair.
Whilst in York, she was wearing blue skinny jeans, a black thigh length padded coat, with fur-lined hood, and grey and black jumper with a Nike emblem on the front in grey and white, and black trainers.
