Police launch urgent appeal for two missing Harrogate girls
Police have launched an urgent appeal after two teenage girls from Harrogate, who are believed to be together, went missing.
13-year-old Leah and 16-year-old Grace were reported missing by their families yesterday (July 6th) after they failed to return home.
They were last seen at their respective home addresses at approximately 5pm yesterday.
Police have been making extensive enquiries to locate them.
However, concerns are now growing for their safety as they are vulnerable due to their age.
The pair have links to both the Boroughbridge and Leeds areas and they may have tried to travel there.
Officers are continuing to search for them in and around these areas.
A police spokesperson gave a description of the pair:
“Leah is described as white, 5ft 2in tall, slim build, with shoulder-length, wavy blonde hair.
“She was last seen wearing jogging bottoms with one white and one black leg, a black crop top with River Island branding, black Nike trainers and a silver/blue puffer style jacket with a fur trim.
“Grace is described as white, 5ft 5in tall, slim build with long, wavy blonde hair. She is wearing denim shorts, black hoody, red bomber jacket and is carrying a black bag.”
