Kaylie Hatton, 16, climbed out of a window at her grandmother's home in Sidcup, Kent, in the early hours of last Saturday May 16, police said.

She was last seen with 51-year-old Fred Finch at a friend's house in Woolwich last Sunday evening. Kaylie was wearing a white top with a gold chain around the collar, black leggings and light brown Timberland boots. Police said Kaylie could pass for older than her 16 years.

Mr Finch who is missing from Eltham is white with short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a black/blue baseball cap, a black jacket, black jeans and black Nike trainers.

Police want any of Kaylie's friends who may have some information on his disappearance to come forward.

Kaylie's family are extremely worried about her and just want her home safe. They have not seen or heard from her for over a week now and urge anyone with information on her whereabouts to come forward. I would appeal to anyone who may have seen Kaylie or Fred Finch in the last week or have any information of where they could be to contact us immediately. From enquiries and possible sightings, we think they maybe in the southeast London area.

It is possible that someone knows where they could be and it is vital they speak to us to help officers with their enquiries to find these individuals safe and well as soon as possible.

– Bexley Borough Commander, Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe
