Police believe that a teenage girl, who has been missing from her home in Sussex for the past month, may be in Ireland.
They have issued a description of 17-year-old Shannon Ward, from Eastbourne, to the gardai and the PSNI.
Shannon, who sometimes uses a family name of Quilligan, is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall, with long, straight, dark brown hair and brown eyes.
When last seen, she was wearing a short, strapless black dress and grey/black striped cardigan.
She was spotted at the roundabout outside Eastbourne rail station on June 19 last, apparently waiting to meet a friend or relative. Sussex police think she may have travelled to either the Republic or Northern Ireland.
Det Inspr Rob Morland said: “There is no evidence at this stage to suggest that Shannon has come to any harm but with every day that passes we are becoming more concerned”.
