West Midlands Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of teenager Ellie Remington, who has been missing from her home in Walsall since the 20th February 2016, and are appealing for the public’s help in finding her.
They issued the following press release this evening:
Issue Date: 29 February 2016
We are appealing for the public’s help to trace a missing Walsall teenage girl.
Ellie Remington, aged 15, was reported missing on 20 February when she failed to return home.
She was spotted on 26 February at around 11.30am in Walsall town centre but she couldn’t be traced.
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.
We 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 pierced top lip.
Friends of Ellie may not realise that she has been reported missing and we would urge them to contact us with her location so we can make sure she is okay.
We would also ask Ellie to call us on 101 or to come into a local station so we can make sure is safe and well.
Anyone with any information about Ellie’s whereabouts is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.
