Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 17-year-old girl from Stowmarket.

Rahel Kidane was last seen on Wednesday 28th December although potential contact was made once, over the internet a few days ago.

She is described as black, five foot tall, with shoulder length black hair and is of a slim build. She has brown colour eyes and often braids her hair. She speaks very little English and is not familiar with the UK.

When last seen she was wearing a black leather jacket, blue jeans and either black leather boots with a fur trim or turquoise trainers. She also has both ears pierced twice. She was carrying a large holdall.

She has her phone, which is believed to be out of credit, and a small amount of cash with her and it is thought she may be in the Hull or Leeds area.

Anyone who has seen or has knowledge of her whereabouts should contact Suffolk Constabulary on 101.
