Police say they are "very concerned" for the welfare of a teenager who has gone missing. 

Maya, 16, who is originally from Essex, was last seen at around 11.40am on Friday September 3 at Basingstoke train station.

She was seen exiting the gates of the train station and walking by the taxi ranks.

A spokesman for Hampshire Police said: "We are very concerned for her welfare, and are asking for the public to report sightings of her to us.

"She is described as white, slim, around 5ft 10ins tall, with long brown hair below her shoulder.

"Maya was last seen wearing a pink wig, a pink or white face mask and pink top along with a white skirt, white tights and white shoes; pulling a black suitcase, a white bag and a black backpack.

"We have released a photo of Maya, but appreciate that she may look slightly different at this time.

"If you have seen her, or know of her whereabouts, please call 101 immediately quoting 44210394105, or dial 999 in the event of an emergency."

Last month Essex Police also issued an appeal to try and find Maya.
