THE worried mum of a 14-year-old schoolgirl missing from her Sheffield home for three days says she is desperate to be reunited with her daughter.

Courtney McAssey, from Wadsley Bridge, has not been seen since she left her grandma’s home to meet friends on Wednesday.

Her worried mum, Michelle McAssey, 34, told The Star she is frantic for news.

“We have not seen her and don’t know where she is,” Michelle said. “We have been ringing her mobile but she is not answering.

“She has also not used Facebook since she went missing, which is not like her.”

Courtney, who was last seen in Parson Cross, said she would be home between 8pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday. Police have visited all her known friends, but none knows where she is.

Michelle said: “I have had a couple of texts from her phone saying she is fine and she is at a friend’s - but the police have visited the homes of all her known friends and she is not there.

“I am also worried because Courtney needs medication for a kidney problem. I am appealing for anyone who knows where she is to come forward.

“Courtney is not in any trouble - I just want her to know we want her home safe and sound, and that her family is very upset and worried about her.”

Courtney is white, 5ft 5ins tall, slim, with long blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a grey hooded jumper, black leggings and black pumps.

South Yorkshire Police said officers are ‘growing increasingly concerned’. Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting 1,122 of February 6.
