The sister of missing teenager Jade Lynch has made a desperate appeal for her to make contact.
Stephanie Lynch, said Jade is a “really loving girl” who is “always talking to friends”.
“She’s a typical teenager, she’s always in contact with someone online or on her phone - always talking to someone - that’s why we are so worried,” she said.
“We just want to know she is ok because as she’s got older we have got so much closer.”
Jade, who has not been seen since she went to St Helens town centre on Saturday, March 26, is said to have been “very active” on social media but her online presence has halted since she went missing.
The 14-year-old, who was originally from Warrington, left her home on Denton Green Lane in St Helens at around 1pm on the Saturday with her younger brothers before leaving them in the Duke Street area to go and meet someone.
Cheshire Police Detective Superintendent Jon Betts said: “Jade is a young 14-year-old girl who has now been missing for ten days, and we are becoming increasingly concerned about her safety.
“Jade is an extremely vulnerable person and we do not believe that she has access to any cash or mobile phones, which is causing growing concerns.
“I would also like to appeal to Jade directly and ask her to contact us to let us know that you are OK. We are working closely with your friends and family who are increasingly worried about you and want to know that you are safe and well.”
Jade is described as white, approximately 5ft 6 inches tall, of medium build, with long straight black hair. At the time she was last seen she was wearing a black hoodie, which black trousers and white Nike trainers.
She has links to the Merseyside and Manchester areas, but speaking to friends and family we also believe that she may also have links as far north as Cumbria and as far south as Bristol, so we are keen to hear from anyone in those areas who thinks they may have information that could assist our enquires.
Anyone within any information in relation to the whereabouts of Jade is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 257 of 29/3/2016. Alternatively information can be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
