Police hunting for a missing teenager have searched streams near her sixth-form college.

Nida Ul-Naseer, 18, has not been seen since stepping outside her home in Linton Street, Newport, South Wales, on December 28.

Four officers from Gwent Police have been looking for Nida near Coleg Gwent's Nash Road campus and Lliswerry High School.

Fears for her safety are growing, especially as the student was not wearing shoes and did not have her phone, money or coat with her when she disappeared.

But, Gwent Police have said they remain open-minded about the situation, which they continue to describe as a missing person inquiry.

They are also due to search the waterfront near Newport's Rodney Parade Stadium.

Officers have already searched areas around the city including the Transporter Bridge, Lysaght Institute, and Pill Millennium Centre.

Following Nida's disappearance, her family have repeatedly pleaded for her to come home.

Shamyla, 23, described her younger sister as a "very shy and quiet person" as well as "very lovely".

On the night she disappeared, Nida had been upset because her family's asylum-seeker status barred her from attending university. The Naseer family sought asylum after coming to the UK from Pakistan five years ago. Their application was turned down and they are currently appealing.

Police are urging anyone with any information on Nida's whereabouts to contact them via the 101 telephone number or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
