She was on holiday in Edinburgh when she got on a train alone and got off in Newcastle Central Station on Monday, 28 September, at 11:24am and walked into the city centre.

She was last seen wearing a black furry bodywarmer, black top, white leggings and black knee length boots, and she also has a grey sequined beanie hat and stripy grey and black long sleeved top.

We're asking the public to help us locate Shanice, she has a distinctive appearance and we know there will be a lot of people in the city centre today with the rugby match and we're asking for people to contact us if they know where she is.

We're asking the public to be extra eyes for us and to help us to find Shanice."
