Surrey Police is growing concerned for the welfare of a teenage girl from Horley who has been missing since the weekend.

Tonie Cox, 15, was last seen in Horley town at around 7pm on Saturday December 29 and has not been in touch with family, friends or police since despite repeated requests to make contact.

Tonie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, with mousy blonde shoulder length hair and was last seen wearing a blue Nike hooded top, blue jeans and a black and white scarf.

She has gone missing previously but has either returned home or made contact with friends or family a short time after leaving.

Police are urging Tonie to make contact with them as soon as possible so they can ensure that she is safe and well.

Officers from Surrey Police’s Missing Persons Unit are carrying out enquiries to try to locate Tonie and are appealing for assistance from members of the public to trace her.

As well as conducting local enquiries and circulating her details through the NPIA Missing Persons Bureau, Surrey officers have been working with Sussex Police and Metropolitan Police colleagues to search areas including Hastings and St Leonards in East Sussex and Hounslow in south west London, where Tonie is known to have friends and connections.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen Tonie is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 as a matter of urgency, quoting reference M/12/1328, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
