A missing 16-year-old girl may be in Brighton and Hove, according to Sussex Police.
Lacey Easen hasn’t been seen since Friday afternoon (27 March) and officers have asked the public for help trying to find her as they become concerned for her safety.
Sussex Police said that Lacey, who lives in Worthing, was 5ft 4in tall and slim, with a pale complexion, brown eyes and straight dyed blonde hair.
She has a tattoo on her left wrist that says “Brooke”.
When she was last seen she was wearing light blue jeans, a green Parka-style coat with a furry hood and trainers. She was carrying a large black and cream handbag.
Iain Exley, from the West Sussex missing persons team, said: “We’ve heard nothing to suggest that Lacey is in any danger but we need to find her to make sure she is ok.
“It has been suggested to us that Lacey may have gone to Brighton for the weekend with a new boyfriend, possibly a man from East London, and that they could have stayed there in a hotel.
“Lacey could be in West Sussex, in Brighton and Hove or even in London but we need to speak to anyone who may have seen her and could know where she is.”
Anyone with information is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
