Police have made a renewed appeal for help to find a missing teenager from Sussex.
16-year-old Bonnie Rose May Clarke has now been missing for 11 days.
She was last seen at her home in Whitelot Way, Southwick, at about 10.30pm on Monday 26 September. It is believed she is in the Brighton area.
Bonnie is described as white, about 5' 10", of medium build, with shoulder length blonde hair. She wears glasses and speaks with a Welsh accent.
"We are extremely worried about Bonnie Rose because she is only 16 and she is vulnerable. We believe she maybe within the street community in Brighton.
"Her family are desperate to hear from her, and I would urge anyone who has seen her or has any information about her to let us know.
"Bonnie, I want to stress that you are in no trouble with the police whatsoever. We are keen to hear from you so we can help and support you, however we understand that you may not wish to speak to us. If this is the case, you can call, text or email the independent missing persons charity free of charge on 116 000 to let us know you are safe and well.”
