Fears grow for missing teenage girls

Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of two teenage girls who are believed to have disappeared together.

Charmaine Charlesworth and Mercy Russell, both 15, who are from Cullompton in Devon, are believed to be together.

Devon and Cornwall Police said the teenagers have links to areas including Torbay, Bovey Tracey and Newton Abbot.

They are also thought to have contacts in the Ealing area of West London.

"Both girls were reported missing at around 9pm on March 8," a police spokesman said.

"Police are appealing to the public for help to locate them."
