Police have appealed to readers across the country to help find missing teenager Bethanie Summerscales.
Bethanie, 15, was last seen four days ago in Llandegla, near Wrexham in north Wales.
In the past she has been known to frequent Manchester city centre.
Initial enquiries to locate her have proved fruitless and police are now widening their search to include the north west of England, Salford and Manchester.
Bethanie has gone missing before and has been described as being vulnerable.
The teenager was last seen wearing a green jacket with a fluffy hood, a black and pink Adidas top, jeans and trainers.
She is 5ft 3in tall, with blue eyes and long brown hair and of a stocky build.
PC Andy Williams said: “It is now four days since Bethanie went missing and we are growing increasingly concerned for her safety and welfare.
“We also remain keen to speak to anyone who believes they may have seen Bethanie or a person matching her description.”
Anyone who sees Bethanie or has any information should call North Wales Police on 101, quoting the reference S114812.
