Police are growing increasingly concerned for a girl visiting relatives who was last seen by her family on Tuesday.
Aalaya Tarawate, 16, from Morocco, was staying with her aunt and uncle in Brentwood, before she went missing.
It is believed that she went sightseeing in London on her own after apparently contacting Arabic and French speakers on social media.
Aalaya was seen in Shepherd’s Bush yesterday at about 1.30pm and there was a possible sighting at Stratford railway station later that day at 7pm.
Insp Russ Welch said: “Aalaya had very little money and speaks no English. We believe that she was trying to make her way back to Brentwood but she has not been seen since.”

Insp Welch added: “We are extremely concerned for her safety and want to hear from anyone who has seen her or might have seen anything on social media about her.”
