Dozens of volunteers have joined a police search for a missing 16-year-old girl from Havant.

Louise was last seen on Friday May 8 in the Somborne Drive area of the town.

She has not been in contact with family since then, which is very out of character for her.

Officers are urging anyone who may have witnessed anything significant, or captured anything on video, during the VE Day celebrations to get in touch.

Louise is described as:

  • White

  • Around 5ft 2ins tall

  • Slim build

  • Straight, black, shoulder-length hair

Officers have been conducting extensive enquiries and searches in Leigh Park and Havant as well as the Havant Thicket and Staunton Country Park areas.

We know a lot of people would have been out on their driveways on VE Day, and may have been filming the celebrations in their neighbourhood on camera or mobile phone.

Chief Inspector Alex Reading, Hampshire Police

It is thought that Louise could be wearing black jeans, a black and white striped T-shirt, black trainers and a black coat with a fur hood.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting 44200163113, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
