POLICE are renewing their plea for information about a teenager who has been missing from Whaley Bridge for a week.

Thirteen-year-old Alisha Moss, who also uses the surname Fokinther, was last seen in the Whaley Bridge area at around 4.30pm on Thursday, November 10.

She is described as white, around 5ft 3in tall, of slim build with long, straight, dyed black hair. She was last wearing a black cardigan, blue polo shirt and black tights.

Chief Superintendent Peter Lewis, who is in charge of policing in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales said: “We are very concerned for Alisha’s welfare, especially as she is just 13 years old.

“While there is nothing to say that anything has happened to Alisha, we have not had any confirmed sightings of her since Thursday.”

Police are particularly interested to hear from anybody who may have seen anyone matching Alisha’s description on Long Hill or in Whaley Bridge during Thursday evening.

Alisha may have come into Buxton town centre or could have travelled out of Derbyshire and into the Greater Manchester area.

She also has connections in Nottingham city centre and Warsop.

Chief Supt Lewis added: “We would especially like to speak to anyone who may have seen Alisha, that knows her and has not yet spoken to police to come forward.

“I would also like to ask for people with land or outbuildings to check for signs of somebody sleeping rough and for anyone with information to contact police.”

Police can be contacted on the national non-emergency phone number 101.
