Concerns Grow for Missing Teenagers
By ALAN WESTON
MERSEYSIDE Police last night said they were becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of two teenage girls missing from their Wirral homes since last week.Kirsty Upton, 19, and Natasha Anne Hughes, 13, who both live in Leeswood Road, Upton, have not been in touch with any family or friends since approximately 5pm on Thursday when they both went to the local shops together.
Neither of the girls, who are friends, has been reported missing before.
Inspector Simon Draper of Merseyside police said: "Kirsty and Natasha's families are very concerned for the girls as for them to go missing is completely out of character.
"Police have been actively seeking to trace them since being notified of their absence on Friday.
"It is very important that we hear from Kirsty and Natasha or anyone who may have seen them since Thursday. I would urge anyone who may have seen the girls or has any information regarding their whereabouts to contact the police immediately."
Kirsty is described as white, 5ft 7ins tall of heavy build with long blond straight hair.
She has blue eyes and a fair complexion. She was last seen wearing a grey striped hooded top, jeans and brown shoes.
Natasha is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall of heavy build with long blond straight hair. She has blue eyes and a fair complexion. She was last seen wearing a blue tracksuit top, blue jeans and black training shoes.
