Concerns grow for missing 14-year-old
Police are searching for a teenage girl who has been missing since Thursday and may have been spotted in Carlisle.
Ellie Fleming, from Johnstonebridge in Dumfries and Galloway, was last seen at around 7pm on Thursday.
Officers say the 14-year-old was possibly seen in Carlisle town centre on Saturday.
She is described as white, 5ft 7in and of slim build with blonde hair.
When she was last seen she was wearing a khaki jacket with a fur-trimmed hood, a blue North Face top, blue jeans and green Nike trainers.
Inspector Hugh McCombe said: “Extensive inquiries and searches are ongoing to trace Ellie.
“There has been a possible sighting of her in Carlisle town centre on Saturday and we are liaising with our colleagues in Cumbria Constabulary regarding this possible sighting.
“She also has connections in the Barrow-in-Furness area, too.
“Officers are increasingly concerned for Ellie’s safety as she is only 14 years of age, we need to trace her to ensure that she is safe and well.
“I would urge anyone who has seen Ellie, or who has any information on her whereabouts to contact Lockerbie police office through 101 quoting reference number 4083 of May 16.”
