Police are continuing to search for 21-year-old Chloe Mitchell, a high risk missing person from Ballymena, and have made a renewed appeal for information today, Saturday 10th June.

Mid and East Antrim District Commander, Superintendent Gillian Kearney said: "Police are becoming increasingly concerned about Chloe’s safety and we have launched a criminal investigation into her disappearance.

“It is completely out of character for her to not be in contact with her family, who are being supported by specialist officers during this worrying time.

“I am appealing to anyone who was travelling through the James Street area in Ballymena from 10pm on Friday, 2nd June and 5.40pm on Thursday, 8th June to think if they saw Chloe or anything unusual. I would also appeal for anyone with dash-cam footage during this period to bring it to police.

“Chloe was last seen wearing a green and black Northface style jacket, a white t-shirt, leggings and Nike trainers.

“Officers investigating Chloe’s disappearance have been granted a further 36 hours to question a 26-year-old man who was arrested in the Lurgan area on Thursday, 8th June.

“A second man, aged 34, was also arrested this morning in the Ballymena area and remains in police custody at this time, assisting with enquiries.

“I am appealing directly to Chloe to make contact with the police, family or friends so that we know you are safe and well.

"I would like to thank the public and search and rescue teams for all their help in trying to find Chloe.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call detectives on 101 and quote reference number 2262 of 05/06/23
