Kidnap: Police Search For Georgia

There are grave concerns for the welfare of a 17-year-old Shropshire girl feared kidnapped, say police.

Georgia Williams has not been seen since the evening of Sunday the 26th of May when she told her parents she was going to see friends, West Mercia Police said.

A 22-year-old man was arrested in Glasgow on Wednesday the 29th on suspicion of kidnapping the girl and remains in custody.

Superintendent Nav Malik, one of the senior officers on the case, said: ''We are gravely concerned about her disappearance and her parents are naturally very distressed.''

He described Georgia, from Wellington, as a ''vulnerable'' person, who was ''bright'' and for whom the disappearance was ''completely out of character''.

Mr Malik also confirmed Georgia's father is a serving West Mercia Police detective constable, based at Telford.

Mr Malik said the man currently in custody was ''a friend'' of Georgia's but added he was not her boyfriend.

She had been due to attend a music concert with her boyfriend this week, and she also missed her first driving lesson said Mr Malik.

Detectives are now trying to piece together the movements of a Toyota van the arrested man had access to, which was seized at the same time as his arrest at a budget hotel in Glasgow city centre.
