Concerns are growing for a teenager who disappeared from her home in Hove this week.

Ella Sears was reported missing on 3rd January but was last seen in Brighton setting off to a New Year's Eve party in Oxted.

The 16 year old is described as white, 5'3", of slim/medium build and has brown shoulder length hair partially dyed red.

We are obviously concerned for Ella because of her age. She's not in any trouble but we do need her, or anyone who has seen her or who may know where she is, to get in touch as soon as possible so that we know she's okay.
