Sara Anghel has not been seen since she left her home in the Inch yesterday afternoon, telling family she was heading to the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre.

The 15-year-old, who is originally from Romania, left Walter Scott Avenue at around 4pm but failed to return home.

Police have confirmed that they are in touch with port authorities to determine whether Sara and the man have made efforts to leave the UK.

Anyone with information is asked to come forward.

Sara is described as 5ft 4ins tall with a slim build, blonde shoulder-length hair and a dark complexion.

She was wearing a brown leather jacket with a fur collar, a black and white knee-length dress and a pink handbag.

Inspector Bob Innes said: “It is extremely unlike Sara to leave home without telling her loved ones where she is going, and even more out of character for her not to return. We are therefore very eager to trace her quickly and ensure she is safe.

“Anyone who may be in her company, or who has information as to Sara’s current location then please contact police immediately.

“I would also urge Sara to get in touch with her family, friends or with police to tell us where she is and that she is alright.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. A MISSING teenage girl from the Capital is believed to have travelled to Nottingham with a mystery man.

Police are also speaking with port authorities in a bid to establish whether 15-year-old Sara Anghel may have tried to leave the UK.

She has not been seen since she left her home in the Inch on Sunday afternoon, telling family she was heading to the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre.

The teenager, who is originally from Romania, left Walter Scott Avenue at around 4pm but failed to return home.

Concerned relatives have told officers that it was extremely out of character for Sara to not let them know she was safe. At this stage of their investigation police have been unable to provide any information on the age of her companion or why they believe Sara may have travelled almost 300 miles to the Nottingham area.

It is understood that officers do not yet know the man’s identity but there is no suggestion that Sara was taken from the city against her will.

Officers from Police Scotland have not been to Nottingham to join the search, but it is understood they are liaising with Nottinghamshire Police.

A Police spokesman said: “Inquiries have been ongoing to establish her whereabouts and it is believed she may have travelled to the Nottingham area in the company of a male. Officers are also liaising with port authorities to determine whether Sara and this individual have made efforts to leave the UK.

“Anyone with information is asked to come forward.”

Sara is described as 5ft 4ins tall with a slim build, blonde shoulder-length hair and a dark complexion.

She was wearing a brown leather jacket with a fur collar, a black and white knee-length dress and a pink handbag.

“I would also urge Sara to get in touch with her family, friends or with police to tell us where she is and that she is all right.”
