Yesterday, Kennedy’s mother Nicola Palmer was joined by more than 25 volunteers in a widespread search around Grange Farm and Levington but failed to find any trace of her.
Posters printed by Jessops in Ipswich and Tesco have been distributed around the area, with more than 1,000 given out yesterday.
Officers searching for the teenager on the ground were helped by the police helicopter, which was spotted over Foxhall, Rushmere and Kesgrave yesterday afternoon.
Detectives issued a picture of Kennedy’s black backpack with distinctive white pattern which they believe she is carrying.
The 15-year-old is described as around 5ft 3ins tall, with brown hair, and blue eyes.
She has a distinctive haircut, long on one side and shaved on the other.
When she left home she was wearing a sky blue shirt, a navy blue jumper, navy blue trousers and was wearing ankle boots.
