Police are appealing for help to trace two teenagers who have gone missing whilst visiting Blackpool.

Emily Thompson and Declan Kirby, who are both 15 and from Milnthorpe, near Kendal, were last seen on Friday at 12.45pm leaving Marton Mere Caravan Park together.

Emily is described as white, five ft six tall of a slim build with shoulder length straight dark brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a black vest top, black leggings, white Nike air trainers and a One Direction satchel.

Declan is described as white, five ft six tall of a stocky build with short dark brown hair.

He was last seen wearing a red t-shirt, dark coloured baggy jeans with writing on the rear and possibly skate shoe type trainers.

Officers believe that the teenagers could still be in the Blackpool area or that they might have travelled out of the area and are conducting inquiries in neighbouring regions.

PC Luke Barber, of Blackpool Police, said: “We are growing increasing concerned about the whereabouts of these two teenagers and would urge anyone with information to contact police on 101 quoting log number LC-20140815-0849.

“I would also like to urge the teenagers themselves, if they see this appeal, to get in touch and let us know that you are safe.”
