Gabriella’s parents are clearly worried about her and want her to know that she is not in any trouble with them and they want her to come home. We have had some reported sightings of Gabriella in the Southampton area that we are following up, but I would urge people to look at Gabriella’s picture once again and contact us if they think they have seen her. We would also appeal to Gabriella to contact us. Even if she doesn’t want to speak to her parents she can talk to a police officer and just let us know she is safe and well.
– Detective Inspector Phil Scrase, Hampshire Police
Gabriella, or anyone who knows of her whereabouts, can contact Southampton CID by calling 101 or call the anonymous Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
Police have released this CCTV photograph of a man they need to identify in connection with the theft of £1,500 of cigarettes.
At about 4.30am Wednesday, May 8, staff at Sainsbury’s in Shirley, Southampton, heard banging from the cigarette kiosk in the closed store.
The suspects had forced open the store’s front doors and the roller shutter door of the kiosk. They filled a green garden waste bag with cigarettes and left through the front door.
Police think three people arrived at the store on motorbikes before leaving towards Victor Street.
Police say they hope the distinctive clothing of one of the people will help identify him. PC Alex Bowman said: “You would notice the yellow and silver design on the back of the man’s helmet, and the design on the Lacoste rucksack is memorable."
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to ring PC Bowman at Shirley on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111.
