A missing German schoolgirl may be in Brighton, according to Sussex Police.
The force said: “Sussex Police are trying to assist colleagues in Germany with a request to help find missing 16-year-old Lisa-Bo Schlepple.
“Lisa-Bo is believed to have travelled to the UK almost a fortnight ago and was last seen at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Eastern Road, Brighton, on Tuesday (20 February).
“It is possible she may still be in the city.
“She is described as being 5ft 7in tall with blue eyes.
“Originally from Stuttgart, Lisa-Bo is considered vulnerable because of her age and because she has come to England without the knowledge of anyone in Germany.
“Anyone seeing Lisa-Bo or knowing of her whereabouts is asked to contact police online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 1265 of 21/02.
“In an emergency or if she is thought to be in danger, please call 999 immediately.”
