A TEENAGE girl has been missing for about five days. 

Concerns are growing for 17-year-old Hayley Trott from Cuckfield, near Haywards Heath.

She left the address where she was living on Friday, July 5 in the evening and has not been seen since.

She is white, 5ft9in, slim and has chestnut brown hair.

She was last seen wearing black trainers and black leggings, and had a black rucksack.

Sussex Police are liaising with colleagues in the Metropolitan Police after reports that she may be in London.

If so, she is likely to be in the Elephant and Castle, Bermondsey or Islington areas.

A police spokesman said: "There is increasing concern for Hayley's welfare, and anyone who sees Hayley or thinks they know where she may be, is asked to contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1889 of 05/07.

"You can also report concerns or sightings to any other police force via 101."
