POLICE are concerned for the welfare of a 17-year-old girl who has gone missing from the Charminster area of Bournemouth.

Rebecca Brady was last seen by her dad at about 10pm on Tuesday November 6 when she left their home.

A Dorset Police spokesman said Rebecca had "only moved to the area in the last five weeks and has no social network".

The spokesman added: "Due to an illness from which she suffers police are concerned for her welfare."

She is believed to be wearing a blue quilted jacket gathered at the waist, ripped blue jeans, flat shoes and possibly carrying a small green or brown handbag with long straps.
