Police searching for missing Newport teenager Nida Naseer say they are exploring the possibility that she does not want to come home - but are urging her to make contact with someone she trusts.
It is believed the 18-year-old left home on the evening of Saturday 28th December following a disagreement with her family.
Despite extensive police searches, door-to-door enquiries and emotional appeals made by Nida's family, officers say they are no closer to knowing where she is.
The Henna Foundation, a charity committed to strengthening families within the Muslim community, is also appealing to Nida to get in touch.
Meanwhile, Nida's family say they are desperately concerned for her welfare.
They have stressed that she is not in trouble, and that they simply want to know she is safe and well.
A sign on the family's front door reads: 'Nida, please come home. Don't worry - we are all missing you'.
Nida Naseer is described as being of Asian-Pakistani appearance, five feet three inches tall, slim, and with long dark hair. She was last known to be wearing blue jeans and a black top.
