POLICE officers are searching for two teenage girls missing from home, one of whom has links to Barnsley.

Karla Dodd and Aneta Zakova went missing from their homes around 8pm on Saturday and it is believed they may be together.

Karla did return the following day but went missing again later that evening and was last seen near the Co-op on Union Road in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, around 8pm on Sunday.

Police said Karla has links to Barnsley and Aneta may have travelled to the Greater Manchester area.

Karla is white, slim, around 5ft 4ins tall, with dark, collar length hair.

She was last seen wearing black leggings, a turquoise, Adidas hooded top and dark Ugg boots.

Aneta is white, of a stocky build, around 5ft tall with shoulder length, dark brown hair. She was wearing a black hooded top and black tracksuit bottoms.

Detective Sergeant Julie Cross said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for the girls’ welfare due to their young age.

“If anybody has any information about their current whereabouts or knows where they may have been since Saturday then I would urge them to contact us.”

Anybody with any information on their whereabouts should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
