Fears grow for missing teenager

A 14-year-old girl who has been missing for two weeks could be with an adult who might harm her, police said yesterday.

Officers said they were extremely concerned for Brianny Webster, who disappeared from her home in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, on 1 September. Lincolnshire Police said it is possible the teenager is with an adult who "may cause her significant harm". They believe she may be in Lincoln, Sheffield or Nottingham and urged people there to report any sightings as soon as possible.

Chief Inspector Kieran English said: "We are talking about an extremely vulnerable young girl who has been missing for 14 days. She left her home in Gainsborough with no money and no change of clothes and she has no access to a bank account."
