A missing teenage girl from Yorkshire is believed to have boarded a train to Aberdeen almost a week ago.
Courtney Booth, from Doncaster, has now been missing since Saturday after failing to return home.
The 15-year-old is believed to be in the company of a 25-year-old man and was last seen at York station getting on board a northbound train.
Detective Chief Inspector Jo Bates, leading the search for Courtney, said: “Courtney is known to have been in the York and Harrogate areas over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd September.
“Courtney and the man were last seen at York train station at around 3.50pm on Sunday 23 September, boarding a train to Aberdeen. Courtney is pictured here at York train station.
“There are a number of stops along the route and we are in the process of reviewing CCTV footage of each train station to establish where Courtney got off the train and where she then went.
“Courtney has never been missing before and it’s extremely unusual for her not to contact her family. Clearly we are extremely concerned for her welfare and would ask anyone who thinks they may have seen Courtney since she was reported missing to get in touch with us straight away.”
Courtney has light brown/ginger shoulder length hair and is of a medium build.
When last seen she was wearing blue skinny jeans, a black thigh length padded coat, with fur-lined hood, a grey and black jumper with a Nike emblem on the front in grey and white, and black trainers.
Anyone who thinks they may have spotted the pair or knows their wherabouts should contact 101.
