Police seek clues in hunt for missing girl

POLICE yesterday said they were becoming "increasingly concerned" for the safety of a 13-year-old girl, who has been missing from her home in Dundee for five days.

Michaela Hunter has not been seen since she left her home in Yeamans Lane at about lunchtime on Monday.

Yesterday, officers searching for Michaela visited St John's High School, where she is a pupil, in the hope that classmates may have crucial information about her disappearance.

A spokeswoman for the force said: "Tayside Police is becoming increasingly concerned for Michaela.

"Michaela is known to frequent the Menzieshill and Charleston areas of Dundee. It is highly likely that some of her friends in the area are providing her with shelter.

"They need to know that by doing so they are committing an offence.

"We need to make sure that Michaela is safe. No matter how 'streetwise' a person thinks they are, when a 13-year-old girl has not been in touch with their mother since Monday, it is always concerning."

Michaela is around 5ft tall, of slim build, with brown eyes and long brown hair. She was last seen wearing black trousers, a white shirt, a black cardigan and a grey and pink jacket.
