Her mother Charlotte said that scores of people were helping search for the teenager but none has found any sign so far.

I’m heartbroken at the moment, because I don’t know where she is. I don’t know if she’s alive even yet.

We’ve tried her Facebook in every way, people are Twittering her, Instagramming her, Face Timing her, they are just trying on every social media site going.

We are constantly ringing her phone but it is just going straight through saying that it cannot be connected at the moment.
