Police have said they are concerned about a 12-year-old girl who has not been seen since Friday afternoon.

Tia Sharp left her grandmother's home in New Addington, south London, heading for the Whitgift shopping centre in Croydon town centre.

Police said she only has a small amount of money and did not take her travel card or her mobile phone.

They added her disappearance is out of character and are appealing for help in finding her.

The clothing she was last seen wearing is described as a yellow bandeau top, light grey leopard print leggings and black and pink Nike high top trainers.

She is known to frequent the Croydon, Mitcham and Wimbledon areas of south London.
