Tessa Stanford, 20, was last seen at around 2pm on June 21.

She had been staying with her uncle.

She left his home on Kincraig Road saying she was going to meet some friends at the beach, but would be home for tea.

She has not been seen or heard from since.

Sergeant Matt Walters, of Blackpool Police, said: “Tessa appeared happy when she left her uncle’s house and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

“It is extremely out of character for her to go missing like this so we are becoming concerned.

“We would urge anybody who has seen her, or who knows where she may be, to made contact with us. Similarly we would urge Tessa herself, if she sees this appeal, to get in touch to let us know she is safe.”

Tessa is described as white, around 5ft 9ins tall, with shoulder-length light brown hair usually worn in a ponytail.

She was last seen wearing a pink and white stripy t-shirt with black tracksuit bottoms, a black cardigan and white Nike trainers.

She is from the Tipton area of the West Midlands and it is possible she may have returned there.

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 1043 of June 23rd.
