Latest sighting of teenager was on Friday

POLICE are appealing for help in their hunt for a teenage girl from Abbey Wood who has gone missing for a second time - and could be anywhere in south London or north Kent..

Rossana Manuel, 15, was last seen on Saturday, March 28 by her mother at about 11pm in Shaw Close in Thamesmead.

There was subsequently a reported sighting of her on Friday on a route 53 bus travelling from Greenwich towards Deptford. It is believed that she got off in the Egerton Drive area of Greenwich. She may also be in Abbey Wood or Lewisham.

Despite the sighting, officers are growing increasingly concerned for her safety and wellbeing and are urgently asking Rossana, or anyone who knows where she is, to contact them.

Rossana - who previously went missing in February - is black, around 5ft 4 and slim, with long plaited Afro hair.

When she was last seen by her mother, she was wearing blue jeans, a black jacket and blue or grey trainers. However, when she was seen on the bus she was wearing a black hoodie, black jeans and purple and pink high-top trainers.

Anyone who has seen Rossana, or knows her whereabouts, should call police on 101, or the charity Missing People by phone or text on 116000.
