Police appeal over missing girl

A 15-year-old girl may have run off with an older man, police have said.

Lauren Walker, 15, is thought to be with 28-year-old Jason Stephens.

The schoolgirl, from Stoke Gifford, near Bristol, was last seen on Sunday morning, Avon and Somerset Police said.

Lauren later contacted relatives to say she was in the St Paul's area of Bristol but police believe she could have travelled to South Wales or possibly Berkshire.

Lauren is described as a white, about 5ft 6ins tall of medium build with short purple hair.

She has a slight scar under her right eye and has a tattoo saying Grandad on her right wrist.

When she went missing, Lauren was wearing a black jacket over a blue top.

She was wearing black leggings with the face of a tiger on one of the legs.

Police said Mr Stephens was white, of slim build, about 5ft 8in tall with dark short hair.

"He is asked to come forward and advise police of his and Lauren's whereabouts as there are concerns for both of them," a police spokeswoman said.
