Police are appealing for help to find a missing Crawley girl.
Jessica Pusey, 13, has not been seen since she left her home in Warren Drive, Crawley, late on Thursday evening or in the early hours of Friday morning.
The schoolgirl was reported missing on Friday morning (July 4).
PC Lee Simmonds said: “We are concerned for Jessica’s welfare because of her age. It is not the first time she has gone missing but we need to speak to her urgently to make sure she is OK.
“We know she has friends in Brighton and Hove so it is possible that she is somewhere in the city.”
Jessica is 5ft 3in tall and has brown shoulder-length hair and blue eyes.
She was wearing a black top, black leggings and white shoes. She was carrying a black handbag.
