Police appeal for help and information about missing UK trans woman

Lisa Lacey is missing

Police are calling for the public for any information about the whereabouts of a missing trans woman in the UK.

Lisa Lacey, 47, was last seen at her home in Holbeck, Leeds at about 9pm on 3 April.

Described as white, slim, 5ft 7ins tall, with shoulder-length blonde hair. She has a strong Geordie accent and a stutter, and is also known by the names Lisa Hauxwell and Lisa Hauxley.

West Yorkshire Police have also provided her previous name and a picture of Lisa pre-transition.

It is GSN policy to never use a trans person’s previous name or picture before transition. However, West Yorkshire Police made clear to us they have worked with the missing persons coordinator, gone through legal checks, and have reason to believe she switched between a male and female appearance and identity in the past.

Under these rare circumstances, and if there is any hope to find Lisa quicker, the information is here.

Detective Inspector Steve Greenbank, of Leeds District CID, said: ‘We remain very concerned for Lisa’s welfare and urgently need to trace her to establish that she is safe and well.

‘In the interests of tracing her, we are now highlighting that she has been known to use a male appearance under the name Craig John Hauxwell, as shown in the photograph.


‘We are asking for anyone who has seen Lisa in either appearance since she went missing on 3 April to contact us immediately.’

Lisa has links to Blackpool, Durham, Darlington and Kent but could be anywhere in the UK.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds District CID quoting log number 1105 of 4 April.
