A 15-year-old girl from a Suffolk village has gone missing, police have said.

Sara Pontes, of Rougham, was reported missing to police on Sunday after failing to return home from going to visit family in London the previous day.

Contact was made with the teenager on Sunday when she stated she was in Manchester and intended to come home later that day but again failed to return.

Further attempts to contact her have been unsuccessful and police are asking her to get in touch.

She is described as black, around 5ft 4ins tall, of slim build, with shoulder-length curly hair.

Officers are also keen to hear from anyone who may know of her whereabouts. Call police on 101.
