An 18 year old Polish girl has gone missing in Wakefield.

Natalia Pawelec was last seen leaving her home in Eastmoor on Wednesday 9 May. It is believed she has links in Nottinghamshire as well as her connections in West Yorkshire.

Detective Superintendent Paul Taylor is leading the search:

"We really need to see Natalia to check she is OK. Her friends and family are very concerned for her safety and we just need her to get in touch.

"Natalia might think she is in some trouble but I can personally reassure her that we don’t need to speak to her about any criminal matters - we just need to know she is OK."
