A 17-year-old girl has been missing for over a week.

Shannon Ward, Eastbourne, has not been seen since June 19 when she was spotted  at the roundabout outside Eastbourne railway station at about 3.15pm apparently waiting to meet a friend or relative.

Shannon, who sometimes used a family name of Quilligan, is described as white, 5'4", with long straight dark brown hair and brown eyes.

When last seen she was wearing a short strapless black dress and grey/black striped cardigan.

PC Caroline Edmond said; "There is no evidence at this stage to suggest that Shannon has come to any harm, but with every day that passes we are becoming more concerned.

"We ask anyone who knows where she is to contact us, and to encourage them and also Shannon herself to contact us, in confidence, via 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 1141 of 20/6, so that we can arrange to ensure that she is safe and well."
