The sister of missing teenager, Nida Ul-Naseer, has made an emotional appeal for her to get in touch.

Nida was last seen at around 8pm on Saturday 28th December when she went to put the bins out at her family home in Linton Street, Newport.

Naila Anwar, Nida's sister, said: "We miss Nida desperately and want her to come home. We want her to know that she is not in trouble at all and we are worried that she could be unwell because of her condition. What is more worrying is that she missed mum's birthday which is extremely unlike her.

"We would appeal for anyone with any information, no matter how small, to get in touch with police on 101."

Gwent Police say that despite "extensive enquiries" including house to house, leaflet drops, CCTV enquiries and daily local searches, she has not been located.
