Plea to trace missing Walsall teen
Police in Walsall are appealing for the public’s help to trace a missing teenage girl.
Ellie Remington, aged 15, was reported missing on Saturday, 16 May, when she failed to return home.
She was spotted two days later on Monday 18 May at around 1pm when she visited a friend’s house in the town.
Although Ellie has gone missing several times before, this is the longest she has left home without contact and officers are now growing increasingly concerned about her.
Officers have spoken to her friends and family, searched the area near her home and visited several addresses as part of their on-going inquiries.
She is described as white with long blonde hair and a pieced top lip. When she was last seen, she was wearing blue jeans, a black jumper and a cream coat.
PC Charly Killeen, from Bloxwich police station, said: ‘Due to her age, Ellie is considered to be vulnerable and we just need to know she is safe and well. I would urge anyone who sees her to call us on 101.’
