Renewed appeal for sightings of missing girl
2:23pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Headlines
POLICE in the New Forest renewing their appeal for information about the whereabouts of a missing teenage girl.
Suong Thi Bui, 17, is still missing from her home address in Lawrence Road, Ringwood.
She was last seen at home at 4am on Saturday, October 19 and had left home by 10.30am at the latest.
Detective Inspector Jim Park said: “An earlier appeal for witnesses brought some useful information and possible sightings, providing new lines of enquiry that are being followed up by detectives.
“However, as time passes our concern deepens for Suong’s safety.
“She was brought to the UK through illegal human trafficking and was put into the care of social services after being found working.
“She speaks very little English and has no means of buying food or lodgings for herself, which raises our concerns further.
“She may still be in the local area. However, if she has gone further afield it is most likely she has gone to either Bournemouth or London.
“We have new photos of her and I would urge people to have a look. I would ask anyone who knows where she is or who thinks they may have seen her to contact my team.”
Those with information are asked to call the Western Area CID Team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
