Local News | Police Appeal Widens for Missing TeenagerThe 15-year-old hasn’t been seen since about 8pm on Friday, September 18. She was last seen at a youth club at Wesley Methodist Church in Fromond Road, Weeke, Winchester.

We are becoming extremely concerned about Jessica’s welfare as we don’t believe she has any access to money for food, drink or shelter. She also suffers from asthma and it’s not thought she has taken any medication with her.

She is described as white, about 5ft 3ins tall, petite, and has long, light-brown hair. She was last seen wearing grey ‘Duffer’ sweatshirt, black leggings and black Nike Air Max trainers.

Jessica is currently in foster care in Winchester and has previous links to Newbury, Swindon and the Plymouth area. It is also believed that she may have used public transport to travel away from Winchester. Have you seen her on a bus or train? Although she has no money, she may have been able to travel in various ways for free.

Officers have been working all weekend following a number of lines of enquiry to try and locate Jessica. We are also appealing for members of the public to call in with any information they have which may help the investigation.

Do you have any CCTV at your home in the Weeke area of Winchester? Did you see a girl matching Jessica’s description on Friday evening or have you seen her since?

Detective Inspector Tim Ireson, senior investigating officer, said: “We are really concerned about Jessica and need to know that she’s ok, especially because her physical health may be deteriorating. Have you seen her or heard people talking about where she might be? We would really like to hear from anyone with information that might lead to locating her.

“I’d like to appeal direct to Jessica to say that she’s not in any trouble, we just need to know where she is and that she’s ok.”
