1:41pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
POLICE officers searching for a missing teenage girl say they are investigating a number of possible leads.
They are looking into 15 possible sightings of 17-year-old Suong Thi Bui, who has not been seen since Saturday.
These sightings go as far east as Chichester in Sussex, as far west as Blandford Forum in Dorset and some as far away as London.
All of these lines of enquiry are being followed up today. These enquiries have been prioritised based on description, location and other aspects of the circumstances.
Detective Inspector Jim Park said: “I would like to thank the public for an excellent response to our media appeal. This has given us some encouraging lines of enquiry to follow up.
“Anyone who thinks they have seen Suong, but who hasn’t yet contacted the police, is encouraged to ring me or Detective Sergeant Will Whale at Southampton Central on 101 to report sightings.”
Suong was last seen at her home in Lawrence Road, Ringwood, at 4am Saturday, October 19. She speaks little English and has no means of buying food or lodgings for herself.
She was brought to the UK as a victim of human trafficking.
