Concerns raised over missing PGL adventure centre worker

Police and rescue teams are continuing to search for a missing school holiday camp worker who went missing on the Isle of Wight.

Rosie Johnson, 22, from Glasgow, was last seen on Sunday at the PGL Little Canada adventure centre in Wootton, where she works.

She is described as slim, with mousey brown hair and was last seen wearing a dark blue puffer jacket and trousers.

People living nearby have been asked to check sheds, boats and outbuildings.

Ms Johnson, the niece of Scottish MSP Daniel Johnson, graduated from the University of Glasgow last year.

Police inspector Andy MacDonald, of Hampshire Constabulary, said he had “serious concerns” for the welfare of Ms Johnson.

“Information suggests she is still on the island, so this is where we are focusing our search,” he told the BBC.

“It’s not the easiest of areas to search – we have a number of water features, there’s wooded areas, there’s also open areas – so in terms of geography it’s quite challenging.”

A PGL Travel spokeswoman said: “A member of staff working at our Little Canada site on the Isle of Wight did not report for work as planned on Monday morning.

“We were unable to establish their location and as a precaution informed the police who are now co-ordinating a search. We are providing any support we can to help with this.”
