The Met is appealing for the public’s help to trace a teenager who has been missing for nearly a month.
Ella Whitrod, 14, was reported missing from the Bermondsey area on June 21. The last confirmed sighting of Ella was in Westminster on Sunday.
The teenager has links to various parts of London, including Newham, Westminster, Wandsworth, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
There is also information to suggest she may have travelled to Nottingham.
She is described as being around 5ft4ins and was last seen wearing a black puffer jacket.
The Met said a large number of enquiries have been carried out and analysis of Ella’s phone data appears to show she is still regularly using social media.
Detective Inspector Adrian Smith, from the missing person’s team in Lambeth, said: “Ella’s family are understandably concerned and we are keen to make sure she is safe.
“I would ask anyone with information about her whereabouts to contact us immediately.”
Report any information by calling 999 quoting the reference 23MIS020633. Information can also be shared with the Missing People charity by calling 116 000.
