Mum of missing teen 'worried to death'

The mother of Lorna Vickerage is "petrified" about her safety, police said. Detective Chief Inspector Craig Robinson of South Yorkshire Police said the 35-year-old man she is thought to be with has a history of fraud, and urged the 14-year-old to contact her family. Mr Robinson said:

Lorna, you're not in trouble. Your mum's petrified, she's worried to death, we're concerned for your safety. We don't know why you've gone with John and we don't know why John's taken you.

Let us know you're safe and well. Speak to John - tell him to hand himself in, and if you're listening, John we really do need to speak to you. The sooner you get this over with, the better.
