A 16-year-old girl who has gone missing from home may have travelled hundreds of miles and come to Blackpool, police have said.
Sarah-Louise Clarke was last seen in St Leaonards, Sussex, at 11.40am on Saturday – around 315 miles away.
But Sussex Police say she talked about wanting to go to Blackpool and believe she may now be in the resort.
Police say they are growing concerned for her welfare.
A force spokesman said: “Sarah was due home at 8pm but never returned.
“She is described as 5ft 6ins tall, slim with long brown hair and glasses. She is believed to be wearing black leggings and a black top.
“She has connections in the Hastings area but may have travelled to Blackpool.”
