Inspector Roy Hodder said: “We are extremely worried about Bonnie Rose because she is only 16 and she is vulnerable. We believe she maybe within the street community in Brighton.

“Her family are desperate to hear from her, and I would urge anyone who has seen her or has any information about her to let us know.”

In a direct appeal to Bonnie, Insp Hodder added: “Bonnie, I want to stress that you are in no trouble with the police whatsoever.

“We are keen to hear from you so we can help and support you, however we understand that you may not wish to speak to us.

“If this is the case, you can call, text or email the independent missing persons charity free of charge on 116 000 to let us know you are safe and well.”

Bonnie is described as white, about 5’ 10”, of medium build, with shoulder length blonde hair.

She wears glasses and speaks with a Welsh accent.

If you have any information about her whereabouts, email [email protected] or call 101, quoting serial 1555 of 26/09.

If you suspect she is in danger or in need or urgent medical attention, dial 999.
