Detective Inspector Andy Knowles, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: “We’re asking anyone who has seen or heard from Eva since she left school at the end of the day on Friday 19 July to get in touch.

“It’s hugely important that we build a picture of where Eva went, and who she may have seen in the time between then and now. It doesn’t matter how small the piece of information you have may be, we want to hear from you.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 761 of 18 September.
