A spokeswoman for the family of the 15 year old Bristol schoolgirl who is thought to be heading for Syria has said they have 'lost a daughter' and believe she is 'in danger'.

The British teen who is believed to be travelling to Syria will probably "become a jihadi bride," according to a radicalisation expert.
Haras Rafiq from the counter-extremism think tank, the Quilliam Foundation told Good Morning Britain: "It's more than likely that she will go and become a jihadi bride. She, at the age of 15, will marry someone she considers to be a holy warrior."
The missing teenager is described as "popular and gifted" and wanted to be a dentist. There is now concern for others in the area.
