Police are concerned for the welfare of a teenager who has gone missing from her Shoreham-by-Sea home.
Natalia Acton, 14, was reported missing at 10.40pm June 26.
PC Louise Bridger said: “We are concerned that she has not returned home and appeal to anyone who knows her and where she may be to contact police. It is believed she is in the Hastings or St Leonards area. Natalia has been missing before but we are particularly concerned because of her age.
“We would ask Natalia to get in touch so we know she is safe and well.”
She is described as white, 5ft 4in, medium build, with long dark brown hair which she wears curly or straight and is often tied in a ponytail.
Anyone who has any information regarding her whereabouts should contact police on 101 quoting serial 1873 of 26/6.
