Fears are growing for the welfare of a missing 14-year-old girl who was last seen boarding a ferry yesterday afternoon.
Mia Lupton, from Ryde on the Isle of Wight, was last spotted getting off a ferry in Southampton.
The last sighting of the teen was at 2.30pm on Friday.
Inspector Rob Abel said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Mia’s safety the longer she is missing, so we would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen her, or heard from her, since yesterday afternoon.
“We have had a great response from the public so far, helping to share our appeal, so thank you to those who have.
“Mia, if you are reading this, please get in touch with either your family or us, so that we know that you are ok.”
Anyone who has seen Mia, or has any information about her whereabouts, is asked to call police on 101, quoting the reference 44170458126.
