Detective Chief Inspector Lee Berry, who is overseeing the search, said: 'In our most recent update to the public, we confirmed that we had been following up several reported sightings of Pamela in Sheffield.
'One of the most recent sightings we've had of Pamela was at Meadowhall. We're very grateful to everyone who has come forward to provide information to help our inquiry, especially those who have reported sightings of her.
'Based on these sightings, we maintain our belief that Pamela is in Sheffield and is in the company of others. However, it is now three weeks since she left her home. Naturally, concerns are increasing with each passing day she fails to make contact.
'In my last appeal, I urged those who knew Pamela and those who may know where she's staying to get in touch. I want to reiterate that appeal again today '“ Pamela is 16, still a child, and it's of vital importance our officers find her so we can make sure she's alright.
'Based on the information we have gathered to date during this investigation, we do have concerns that Pamela could be at risk, especially because of her young age and the complete lack of contact we've had.
'While we do believe the sightings of Pamela are genuine and appear to indicate she's not been harmed, the only way we can know that for sure is to locate her and speak to her directly.
'Pamela, if you're reading this '“ please get in touch with officers. You're not in trouble, your family and our officers are concerned about you, and we just want to make sure you're okay.'
Anyone with information is asked to contact police urgently on 101, quoting incident number 941 of December 24.
