Police are trying to trace 12-year-old Tia Saunders, who has been reported missing from home in Crowborough.
She was last seen at 3.30pm on Wednesday (16 August) and was spoken to on the telephone by her mother some two hours later. But after being asked to return by 8.30pm she failed to do so and there is now concern for her well-being.
Tia is described as white, age 12, 5’5″/5′ 6″, of skinny build and with long blonde hair. She was last seen wearing blue skinny jeans, white trainers, a white t-shirt and a grey zip-up hooded jacket.
PC Lisa Cousins said: “Given Tia’s age and vulnerability, we are anxious to find her as soon as possible.”
Anyone seeing her or knowing of her whereabouts is asked to contact Sussex Police call 101, quoting serial 1 of 17/08.
