Public asked not to help in search for missing teen

Thames Valley Police have asked the public not to help in the search for missing 17-year-old Jayden Parkinson. She has been missing for nearly two weeks and police believe a young man seen struggling with a suitcase in the Upton and Didcot could hold the key to the investigation.

Two men aged 17 and 22 remain in police custody on suspicion of murder in connection with her disappearance. Commander Supt Christian Bunt said: 'At this stage it is a critical time in our investigation into the disappearance of Jayden Parkinson.

'Due to the nature of the police searches taking place, we would request the public refrain from organising their own search activity at this stage to avoid the risk of jeopardising the investigation.'
