Sister appeals for teenager to come home

The older sister of a missing Surrey teenage has appealed to her sister to come home.

Sian Smith said: "I just want to say please come home or at least get in touch so that we know that you are safe. We are all really worried about you and we just want to make sure you are ok."

Sian described her sister as an “extrovert, vivacious, normal 14-year-old”. She is white, around 5ft 3ins tall, slim to medium build, with shoulder length brown hair that may be tied in a bun. She has brown eyes and a tanned complexion. She wears size six shoes.

Officers are making enquiries in the London area and are liaising with the Metropolitan Police Service as part of the investigation.

Police say lack of contact "deeply concerning"

A dedicated team of detectives is investigating the disappearance of a 14-year-old girl from Surrey and has appealed for anyone with information to make contact and help bring her home.

It is now over a week since Esme was last seen and although the investigation this far has not led us to believe Esme has come to any harm it is still deeply concerning that a 14-year-old girl has not made any contact with her family or friends for this period of time. We have received a number of calls from people who believe they may have seen Esme following the appeals in the media and these are being followed up."

– Detective Superintendent Jon Savell, Head of Surrey Police Public Protection

Detective Superintendent Savell also appealed directly to Esme, asking her to contact the police, her family or a friend to let them know she was safe and well. He added: "You can also contact 'Missing People' free on 116 000 which is a confidential helpline."

I would like to thank the members of the public and the media who have assisted with the investigation thus far and hope they will continue to support us while we work to bring Esme home."
