Police believe that a missing 15-year-old girl has been seen with a man in Brighton this week as they asked again for help to find her.

Detectives also want to speak to a man whose photograph they released as they said that their concerns are growing for the girl’s safety.

Sussex Police said: “We would like to speak to this man as we believe he might be able to help us find missing teenager Yasmin Price.”

Detective Inspector Julie Wakeford said: “We are becoming very concerned for the safety of Yasmin and the man pictured could be someone who has key information about where she may be.

“He is not wanted for any criminal offence in relation to Yasmin going missing. We just want to speak to him.”

She said that the pair were believed to have been seen together on Wednesday 17 January in Queen’s Road and in the St Nicholas Rest Garden, Brighton.

Detective Inspector Wakeford added: “We are very keen to speak to the man to see if he can assist with inquiries.

“We would urge anyone with information or who believes they have seen either Yasmin or the man in the photo or who may know him to contact us as soon as possible.”

Yasmin, 15, went missing last Saturday (13 January) from her home in Harold Drive, Eastbourne, at 5.30pm.

She is white, 4ft 5in and with long mousy blonde hair in a pony tail.

She was last seen wearing a grey hoody, Puffa-style jacket, black jogging bottoms and trainers.

The force added: “If you see the man pictured, please ask him to make contact with the police.

“If you see Yasmin, please call 999.”
