A 19-year-old woman has been found by police three days after going missing and allegedly meeting with a man who may have impersonated her online.
Chloe Fewster had last been seen on Christmas Day in Hull, with relatives claiming she disappeared with a ‘very dangerous’ man who may be her boyfriend.
But Humberside Police confirmed this morning that Miss Fewster had been seen and spoken to by officers after being located in the East Yorkshire city last night.
Miss Fewster responded to a Facebook post by a family member late yesterday evening amid mounting concerns over her safety, saying: ‘Safe and well confirmed by police and that’s why they’ve removed their post.’
And her mother Kerry McDougall wrote on Facebook today: ‘Just want to thank everybody who has shared posts about Chloe and shared information. She has now been spoken to by the police and is no longer a missing person.’

In the hours before she was last seen, Miss Fewster had posted a cryptic Facebook message with a picture of herself and an unnamed man wearing beauty face masks with the caption: ‘My love’.
Miss McDougall had previously said that although messages had been sent from Miss Fewster’s social media accounts, she did not believe they were being written by her daughter.
She also warned those on social media who said they were looking for her daughter not to approach the pair if they spotted them, writing: ‘If you do see them ring 999, I wouldn’t approach him.’
Friends had claimed to have been in contact with her on Facebook and Snapchat since she disappeared, but Miss McDougall had said ‘honestly he controls her social media’.

She added: ‘I thought I was messaging her for a week and she was replying back when all the time he was messaging me pretending to be Chloe saying she’s fine when she wasn’t fine at all she will do and act. Please don’t be fooled by him.’
Miss McDougall also wrote yesterday: ‘If anyone thinks they’re being loyal to Chloe by not passing any info of her whereabouts on to me or the police – the best thing they can do is pass it on as she’s alone with a very dangerous man’.
A Humberside Police spokesman said today: ‘Nineteen-year-old Chloe Fewster, reported missing on Boxing Day, has been located and has been seen and spoken to by our officers.
‘Chloe was reported missing at 11am on December 26 prompting an extensive police operation to find her. She was located in Hull last night. We would like to thank everyone for sharing our appeals to find Chloe.’
