POLICE are appealing for help to trace 14-year-old Carla Marsh.

Carla left for Penistone Grammar School from her Worsbrough home at around 7.40am on July 17, with carrier bags containing clothes and hair straighteners. School staff were alerted and the bags were subsequently removed from Carla.

She was last seen at around 3pm in the Worsbrough area.

Carla, who went missing with another girl last month, is described as slim, approximately 5ft 9ins tall and white. She has shoulder-length, blonde hair which is currently dyed pink and was last seen wearing a dark-coloured school uniform. She speaks with a Yorkshire accent.

Police believe she may be in the Sheffield, Barnsley or Penistone areas.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Carla is asked to contact the South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference numbers BX/2133/2013.

If the school saw her with these things and took them off her, shouldn't alarm bells have been ringing?? Better to have phoned parents before just assuming she would go home. Hope she is found well. Silly yes, but she obviously had her reasons! And probably thought on the spur of the moment. Can't imagine what her family are going through. :-(

sounds like she has issues? Maybe family counseling might help?

Cant imagine what parents are going through but this is getting ridiculous. Leave her to come back when she ready, clearly she's not been abducted but has ran away AGAIN. Let her come back when she's ready then charge her for wasting police time. DO said last time when she ran away people aren't going to help because it's every month. Boy that cried wolf comes to mind.

Obviously its childish ... shes a CHILD!!! There are clearly issues here that need addressing for her, her family and the school, attention seeking or not there is a problem!! Maybe if we all had a little more tolerance to help people with their problems instead of jumping on the band wagon of judgement half the kids wouldnt have problems!! just a thought!!!

Agree about the childish remarks .. Whose to judge without knowing all the facts it's obvious it is for attention so this should be acknowledged and sorted...a hard time for all involved !!!

I know all the facts as she WAS a friend of my daughter.Every time she doesnt like what her foster parents ask her to do she runs off, when she came to my house claiming her then foster parents had beaten her, truth was she wasnt allowed friends to sleep over so she ran away.No doubt the police will be visiting me again to see again if we have any idea where she might have gone this time.

I think the old saying if you cant say anything nice then don't say anything at all should be applied as a rule on WAB. There is a 14 year old child out on the streets on her own or worse with someone who could take advantage, the main issue should be to find her and get her safe. if this is not the first time she as ran away there must be a reason she don't want to be at home (I am not blaming the family in any way). there are easier ways to get attention. my thoughts are with the girl and her family x

This CHILD!! Obviously as issues! Why so quick to judge!! And with all the attention in the press lately about other apparant attention seeking children who where infact groomed and sold on to men my alarm bells are certainly ringing!!! There as to be a reason she's going to Sheffield! She's obviously staying sum where!! Being in the care system all be it foster parents who I'm sure are lovely people would ave an effect on any child try and imagine your own children in a similar situation I'd hope to god nobody would right them off! I don't know the reasons she's there but I dare say neither do any of you but the fact still remains she's a child and needs to be back home and kept safe!!!

Its her own fault in my opinion for her going missing again, it's OBVIOUS she's attention seeking! People saying that their thoughts are with her family, haha you make me laugh, her family probably don't care or they would be out there searching every day if they loved her that much and they wouldn't have let her gone missing again! Yeah it makes her more vulnerable out there at such a young age but still it's her own fault at the end of the day and I have no sympathy for her.

THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE! hope to god she is found safe and sound for some of you nasty peoples sake! ever thought some off your comments may be why she runs away!

This child is in foster care, her mum died. Well done you adults slating her.

Even if she has done this sort of thing before she is still a child and maybe this time she isn't jus. Attention seeking police have a duty to children to find them I do agree when She. Found If she has just rum away foe attention she should be arrested and charged with wasting police time
