Police are appealing for help in tracing a missing 15-year-old girl from Kesgrave in Suffolk. Tiffany Ambrose was last seen at around 8pm on Friday night.She left her home address in Windrush Road, Kesgrave and has not returned since.
She is described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall, of medium build, with blond hair that is shaved on the right hand side and brushed over to the left. She also has blue eyes and a stud in her right eyebrow.
She was last seen wearing black leggings, a green camouflage jacket and possibly white trainers.
Officers believe Tiffany is still in the local area and are asking anyone with information as to where she is to get in contact immediately on 101.
Hundreds of thousands of pro-Europe protesters gathered at Kiev's main square to put more pressure on Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovic.
Mr Yanukovic is seeking closer ties with Russia after recently dumping a trade pact with the European Union.
He met the Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday. The opposition said this was an indication he is preparing to take Ukraine into a Moscow-led customs union, which they see as an attempt to recreate the Soviet Union.
"We are on a razor's edge between a final plunge into cruel dictatorship and a return home to the European community," jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko said in an emotional message to the crowd read out by her daughter Yevgenia.
Organisers said the number of protesters could swell to 1 million.
The rally marks a further escalation in a weeks-long confrontation between authorities and protesters that has raised fears for political and economic stability in the former Soviet republic of 46 million people.

The arrests were part of Operation Wanderer, an investigation into forced labour and human trafficking.

This is an ongoing and dynamic inquiry; our primary aim is to safeguard and protect vulnerable victims.

The official memorial service for Nelson Mandela will take place at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
A message on the government website said it would be attended by members of the public as well as heads of state.
"This will give ordinary people and public leaders an opportunity to celebrate Madiba's life collectively," they said in the statement.

Labour's Jack Straw has said MPs pay must increase to attract "people of modest backgrounds" into politics.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) is expected to increase MPs' pay by 11 per cent to take effect after the 2015 general election.
Mr Straw, who will stand down as an MP at the next election, admitted said there was never a right time to increase MPs pay but said the salary must be sufficient enough to attract a wide range of people including those who had not inherited family wealth or homes.
Speaking on Radio 4's The World This Weekend, the former Foreign Secretary questioned whether it was right MPs pay had "fallen so far behind" some primary and secondary school headteachers, local government figures and senior journalists.
"Most people would find it pretty extraordinary that [IPSA] would be recommending a large rise for MPs at a time when living standards in this country are under pressure," Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander told ITV News.
"I would still appeal to IPSA even at this late stage to recognise that the economic climate - the climate of pay for people in the public sector particularly - is one of continuing restraint and that same principle should be applied to MPs," he said.
