Bedfordshire Police is appealing for help to trace a 15-year-old student who has been missing since October 19.
Tonice King is living with carers in Chaucer Road, Bedford and was last seen close to Bedford Railway Station.
It is known that Tonice knows a number of people in the Slough and West Midlands areas of the country.
Officers are becoming increasingly concerned for her wellbeing and PC Ian Evans of the force’s Missing Persons Unit, is keen to speak to anyone who can help trace Tonice.
PC Evans said: “Tonice hasn’t done anything wrong but we do need to ensure she is safe and well. I would urge Tonice or anyone who knows where she is to contact the police as soon as possible.”
Tonice is described as a 15 year old girl of mixed race appearance, with a stocky build, curly purple hair, blue eyes and wears a nose ring and a stud in her lip.
She was last seen wearing black leggings, a green knee-length parker style coat with a fur hood and purple and white Adidas trainers.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Tonice can contact PC Ian Evans, in confidence, on 01234 275136, or Bedfordshire Police on 101.
