Missing teen 'upset' at scuppered university plans

A teenager who vanished after taking out the rubbish was upset because her family's asylum-seeker status barred her from attending university, her family said today.

Eighteen-year-old Nida Ul-Naseer, of Newport in South Wales, has not been seen since stepping outside her home on December 28.

Her family told a press conference that their attempt to seek asylum in the UK from Pakistan was turned down a year ago.
