Emily Besant missing last seen in Worthing SUS-160324-162509001

The 15-year-old disappeared at around 2.40pm. Officers have released this CCTV image of Emily at East Worthing railway station at 3.34pm. It is believed she got on a train to London.

Inspector Roy Hodder said: “We are concerned for Emily because of her age and she has now been missing for five days. Although she has been living near Arundel she has links to Brighton and Crawley and maybe in the south London area.”

Emily is white, 5ft, of small build with very long, straight, dyed dark purple hair. She has her lip, tongue and belly button pierced. She was last seen wearing a black and grey Adidas top with dark blue jeans and carrying a red and orange bag.
