Police are asking for the public's help to locate a 19-year-old woman from Hartcliffe who has gone missing.

The family of missing Hartcliffe teenager Gemma Hall has appealed for her to get in touch as the police inquiry to locate her continues.

Following an initial appeal, police have received several calls from members of the public with potential sightings of 19-year-old Gemma, who was last seen at 4pm on Sunday (22/12), when she left her home in Maynard Road to go to Fulford Fish Bar in Fulford Road.

Det Sgt Robert Pearce said: “We are doing all we can to locate Gemma and continue to ask the public for their help in reporting any potential sightings or information to us as soon as possible. 

“We’ve had potential sightings of Gemma in the south Bristol area which we are following up. 

“It is clearly a very difficult time for Gemma’s family, especially with Christmas just around the corner, when families should be together.” 

Gemma’s mother Wendy Adlam said: “Please come home safely, we’re all missing you. It’s Christmas, please come home.” 

Her sister Marjorie Hall said: “We’re all missing her. She’s not in any trouble; we just want to get her home. I don’t want to celebrate Christmas with one of my family missing.

“Gemma, please call home or the police and let us know you are safe.” 

Gemma was wearing black and purple trainers, a red fleece and black leggings at the time of the last confirmed sighting.
