Urgent Appeal To Find Missing Wellington Teenager

Missing teenager Georgia Williams West Mercia Police are urgently seeking the public's help to find a missing teenager from Wellington in Shropshire.

Georgia Williams, aged 17, left her home 7.30pm on Sunday 26 May and has not been seen by her family since.  Police and her family are increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Police believe that Georgia may have been travelling with a 22-year-old man from the Wellington area.  He was arrested this morning in Glasgow, on suspicion of kidnap.

Superintendent Nav Malik from West Mercia Police said:  "I am concerned for Georgia's welfare and am asking for the public's help to try and locate her.

"We believe that Georgia may have been travelling with a man since she left her home on Sunday.  A police operation has led to the arrest of a man in Glasgow but we have so far not been able to locate Georgia.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who has seen Georgia since Sunday afternoon,  or has any information about her whereabouts or movements over the past few days.

"I also want to know about the movements of a silver Toyota Hiace 300 GS van, registration number CX06 ASV, which we know the arrested man was driving.  We know that this vehicle travelled from Wellington to Oswestry, Shropshire, before travelling to Rhyll, Chester, Cumbria and then onto Glasgow."

Georgia is described as white, 5ft 3ins tall of slim build and she has red hair.

Superintendent Malik added:  "I'd also like to make a direct appeal to Georgia to get in touch with us.  If you hear these appeals, please contact us.  You are not in any trouble, we simply wish to make sure you are safe and well."

Anyone with information about Georgia's whereabouts can contact West Mercia Police on 0800 056 0944.
