A 15-year-old girl from Climping has gone missing.

Police are searching for Harriet Long who has been missing from her Climping home since Monday evening.

Harriet is described as black, 6ft 1ins, of broad build, with shoulder length black afro style hair, and was believed to be wearing tracksuit bottoms, and old navy coloured Timberland shoes.

She was last seen at her home in Yapton Road during the evening of Monday, and was reported missing to police late that night.

PC Mark Green said; “While there is currently no evidence that Harriet has come to any harm, this disappearance is out of character. We are also concerned for her welfare because of her age and because she has recently moved to West Sussex from Essex, and has few friends in the area at present.

“If you have seen Harriet or know where she is, please contact us via 101@sussex.pnn.police.ukor call 101, in either case quoting serial 30 of 1/9.”
