Jayden Parkinson, who is 17-years-old, was last seen leaving 1 Foot Forward in Iffley Road around mid-afternoon on 3rd December.

It is believed she could be in the Oxford or Reading areas.
Jayden is described as white, of slim build with shoulder length dark brown hair and brown eyes.
Inspector Chris Simpson who is leading the search said, "We are becoming increasingly concerned for Jayden's welfare as she has little money and she has not been in phone contact which is out of character for her.
"Jayden is not in trouble but we need to get in touch with her to ensure she is safe."
If anyone knows where Jayden is, please contact Inspector Simpson on 101.
