Faye Jones, 16, from Cramlington, has been missing since Thursday, when she packed a suitcase and left the hotel in Marmaris where she and her mother were staying.

The teenager was spotted with a man in the town's bazaar a few hours later, but fled when police gave chase, dropping her suitcase.

Faye's mother Rhonda believes she may be with a local barman, Murat Can Ertani, who she met on holiday the previous summer.


Mother's appeal to teenage girl missing in Turkey

The mother of a teenage girl who is missing in Turkey said she has spent every minute searching for her. Rhonda Jones, from Cramlington, was in Marmaris with her daughter Faye when she disappeared on Thursday, apparently running away with a local man.

"This is my worst nightmare. Faye and I are really close. She is my only child and I am a single parent. I know she was cross with me but I never imagined she would run away. Now she has nothing - no money, no passport, no clothes. I was convinced she'd be back by now.

"I love you - we all love you. Please let us know you are safe. I just want you to come home."
