Police have issued a second appeal to find a vulnerable 14-year-old who is missing from Southend.

She was last seen in Southend High Street around 5.30pm on Thursday, September 20.

She was wearing black trousers, black and white shoes and had a large bag with her.

She was also carrying two small kittens.

Officers appealed earlier this month, but she is a vulnerable young person and we are concerned for her safety.

She is known to visit areas in East London, in particular Stratford, Walthamstow, Leyton, Ilford and Hackney, as well as more central areas of London such as Islington.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Southend Police Station on 101.

Information can also be given completely anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org/
