Concern is growing for a Bournemouth teenager missing for almost a week.
16 year old Khadija Cordingley was reported missing having last been seen at around 7.30pm on Monday 30 September at her home address in South View Place.
She is described as mixed race, around five feet five inches tall and with long black frizzy hair.
She is believed to have been wearing large hooped earrings, grey tracksuit bottoms, a parka-style jacket and white trainers.
Chief Inspector Claire Phillips, of Dorset Police, said: “It is out of character for Khadija to be away from home for this long and we are becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare.
“I would also make a direct plea to Khadija if you see this appeal to please make contact with us or your family and let us know where you are as we all just want to make sure you are safe and well.”
