TWO teenage sisters have gone missing from their foster home.

Siblings Elesha Joseph, 16, and Olivia Joseph, 15, were last seen when they had supper at about 6pm on Wednesday (October 15) in Goring.

When the bedroom they shared was checked later that evening, the girls had gone.

Both are British Jamaicans whose father died in 2003.

Their mother died in July this year.

They had been living in the Caribbean but returned to Britain and entered foster care about three weeks ago.

Both are black and have cornrow-plaited hair.

Elesha, 5ft 2in, is thought to be wearing a grey coat and blue jeans. She wears glasses.

Olivia, 5ft 3in, is thought to be wearing a burgundy red coat, an ankle-length skirt and back shoes.

Neither girl is thought to have had money or mobile phones with them when they left.

Detective Inspector Rob Walker, of Worthing CID, said: “Clearly we are keen to find both girls as soon as possible.

“They have relatives elsewhere in the UK and it may be that they have set off to try to join them.

“We are making extensive enquiries in an effort to trace Elesha and Olivia, but would urge anyone who may have seen them or who knows of their whereabouts to contact police without delay.”
