A number of unconfirmed sightings of a missing Vietnamese teenager who was trafficked to the UK are being investigated by police.

Suong Thi Bui, 17, was reported missing from her home in Ringwood, Hampshire on Wednesday.

A police appeal has led to potential sightings across the south of England from Chichester, West Sussex, to Blandford Forum in Dorset and London.

She was last seen around 04:00 BST on Saturday.

Det Insp Jim Park from Hampshire Constabulary said: "I would like to thank the public for an excellent response to our media appeal.

"This has given us some encouraging lines of inquiry to follow up."

Suong Thi Bui speaks very little English and has no means of buying food or paying for a place to stay.
