The video starts with CCTV footage of Leah clocking in to her job at DFC on Knowhill the day before she vanished.

It then shows Leah walking the frosty route through Furzton the following morning, February 15 2019.

She is striding purposefully along through the footpaths and does not seem agitated or distressed in any way.

Leah never got as far as her workplace, pictured, on that Friday morning

But after Tellytubby Hill in Furzton, there are no more sightings of the 19=year-old, and the video continues the route along the streets, around part of Furzton Lakes and into Knowlhill, finally stopping at her office.

DFC is part of the Transaction Services Group (TSG), a leading revenue management solutions provider with a presence in Australasia (Debitsuccess and FFA Paysmart), the UK, within Europe, and the USA.

Police are hoping the film will jog people's memories and help them remember if they saw Leah or anything significant in the area filmed on this day two years ago.

"The smallest thing could be prove the vital link we need to discover what happened to Leah. And there is a £10,000 reward for anyone who gives us information that leads to her being found," said the man in charge of the investigation, DCI Andy Howard.

Leah had set out from her family home at Quantock Crescent at about 8am that day. She was taking her usual two mile walk to work and nothing seemingly was amiss.

It was a cold and frosty morning, the day after Valentine's Day and the last school day before half-term. She was wearing a black coat, black skinny jeans, black converse trainers and carrying a black rucksack-type handbag on her back. She may or may not have had her glasses on

Leah was captured on CCTv in Buzzacott Lane, Furzton at 8.16am. But when she reached Furzton Lake, at 8.34am precisely, her phone suddenly left the network. It has neither been found nor reconnected since.

The detailed map her route, which covers less than one square mile, can be downloaded here . The streets involved include: Loxbeare Drive, Shirwell Crescent, Dulverton Drive, Lynmouth Crescent, Porlock Lane, Morebath Grove, Bilbrook Lane, Radworthy, Bickleigh Crescent, Radworthy, Pinkworhty, Wistmans, Exebridge, Swimbridge Lane and Shallowford Grove.

The area is, apart from the stretch around Furzton Lake, built-up and largely residential, bustling with people and traffic at that school and work run time of the morning. It is bordered by two busy grid roads - Chaffron Way (H7) and Fulmer Street (V3).
