Police in Cheshire are appealing for information about the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl.
Imogen Tothill was reported missing by her parents on Tuesday, February 8, after failing to return to her home in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, with police saying they are growing 'increasingly concerned' for her welfare.
Her disappearance was said by family members to be 'totally out of character.'
Imogen is described as white, of slim build, around 5'8 tall and with blonde hair.
She was last seen leaving the house wearing a black hoodie and dark trousers and is believed to have been carrying a black rucksack.
'Officers have been searching for Imogen throughout the night, so far to no avail,' said Cheshire Constabulary Detective Chief Inspector David Moores, per The Independent.
'This is totally out of character for her and we are becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare. I urge anyone in or around the Holmes Chapel area who thinks that they may have seen Imogen since she went missing to get in touch with us.'
Moores also urged members of the public in the surrounding area to check their cameras for any potential sightings of the 17-year-old, saying 'The same goes for anyone with information regarding her whereabouts, or CCTV or dashcam footage of her since she disappeared.
'I would also appeal directly to Imogen to contact us to let us know you are safe and well.'
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Imogen is urged to report it to Cheshire Police via their website www.cheshire.police.uk/tell-us or by calling 101 and quoting the case number IML1196954. Anonymous reports can also be made to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
