Police are growing "increasingly concerned" for the welfare of a missing 13-year-old schoolgirl.

Tia, no last name given, has not been seen since after school in Churchdown, Gloucestershire, on Thursday (June 15) at around 3pm.

She has links to areas across Gloucestershire including Newent, Churchdown, Brockworth, Coney Hill as well as the wider areas of Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Tia is described as being of a slim build, 5ft 3ins in height, has long brown hair which was in a ponytail and has her ears pierced.

When last seen Tia was wearing a white polo top and black trousers with an over-the-shoulder bag.

Now, Gloucestershire Constabulary is asking for the public's help to locate her.

Anyone who has information on where Tia may be, or anyone who has seen her, is asked to call police on 101 and quote incident 371 of June 15.

If you can see her at the time of calling dial 999 and ask for police.
