Police believe a teenage girl who has been missing since Sunday may be with an older man she met on the social networking site Facebook.

Chantelle Stewart, 15, lives in Milnathort, Perth and Kinross, and is a member of the traveller community.

She went missing while visiting Falkirk on 23 December.

Chantelle is believed to be with an older man who is also a member of the traveller community. It is thought that they may have travelled to England.

Police said the man may have connections to the Manchester area but he and Chantelle could have travelled anywhere in the UK.

Her family have had no contact with her since she went missing and are said to be "deeply concerned".

Chantelle's relatives have been unsuccessful in tracing her within their own community and have appealed to police and the general traveller community for help.

Anyone who knows where Chantelle is, or who has information that help in tracing her, is asked to contact Tayside Police.
