Missing Teacher: Statement

A missing primary school teacher from Bedford was supposed to have returned to work at a school in Hitchin on Tuesday 16 April 2013 after the Easter holidays.

Leda Bolden remains missing though.

The 39 year old hasn't been seen since leaving home to buy cigarettes on Easter Sunday 31 March 2013, following a small family argument.

Leda (right) who is the Assistant Head Teacher at the Our Lady Catholic Primary School, Hitchin, was reported missing over the Easter holidays by her husband and 15 year old daughter.

Headteacher Susan Brown and Ian McBain, the Chair of Governors, have released this statement to Heart:

"We are concerned and shocked by the news that Leda has gone missing over the Easter holidays.  The Governing Body and staff are praying for her safe and speedy return.  We are helping the police in their efforts to find her and have offered any assistance we can give to her family.

"We ask everyone in our Parish and community to join us in those prayers and to respect our children so they can focus on continuing their education."
