Gemma's mother Wendy Adlam appealed for her daughter to come home.

She said: "Please come home safely, we're all missing you. It's Christmas, please come home."

The teenager's sister Marjorie Hall said: "We're all missing her. She's not in any trouble; we just want to get her home.

"I don't want to celebrate Christmas with one of my family missing. Gemma, please call home or the police and let us know you are safe."

Gemma was wearing black and purple trainers, a red fleece and black leggings at the time of the last confirmed sighting.

Detective sergeant Robert Pearce, who is leading the missing person inquiry, said: "We are doing all we can to locate Gemma and continue to ask the public for their help in reporting any potential sightings or information to us as soon as possible.

"We've had potential sightings of Gemma in the south Bristol area which we are following up.
