Ellie Brannen and Reah Hall, both aged 14, were reported missing from home on Tuesday (March 15) and were last seen together in Layton on Wednesday morning (March 16).

But after three days, the pair remain missing and police are growing increasingly concerned for their welfare.

Officers say the girls have links to Preston, but it is believed they might be staying somewhere in the Blackpool area.

CCTV showed the pair together at a local shop in Layton on Wednesday evening (March 16).

Chief Insp Cara Leadbetter, of Lancashire Police, said: “We believe they may be together and are asking anybody with information about where they might be to get in touch with us straight away.

“We would also ask Ellie and Reah themselves, if they see this appeal, to make contact with us.”

Anybody with information should call 101, quoting log LC-20220314-0126.
