Hi - Time from the Police.

Was it inside or outside the shop and can you remember any clothing, please.

Yes, she was outside the shop walking towards the car park. She was with another lady, older than her (Blonde hair if i remember correctly). The missing girl, if it was her, was wearing red knee length shorts and a black patterned top.

I knew lauren from school & this is totally out of character for her to do anything like this. She always did everything to please her family so its shocking to me. The funny thing is she got facebook this year and added me about 4 months ago & started talking to me on it. I tried looking for the messages to get exact dates but looks like ive deleted them when my inbox got full. But it cant have been longer than 4 months ago. She seemed fine & happy enough. I hope you find her fit & well!! GET BACK HOME LAUREN we are all thinking of you! Xxxxxxxxxx

I think I saw Lauren at Tesco Stairfoot on Wednesday too. I was leaving the store at about 4:15pm and noticed a girl in knee length red shorts accompanied by an older lady. Can't be sure it was Lauren but this girl was quite tall and had a tattoo on her right calf.

Hope she is ok and returns home safely.

Sue could you please give me more detail about seeing Lauren. She has told everybody she no longer talks to her mum, hence the confusion about you comment. Thank you

Hi everyone, the people who have seen Lauren could you please contact me. Especially Sue who has commented saying she seen Lauren with her mum. Please could you email me with more detail as i really need to get in touch with her, her phone is never switched on. I have not seen or heard from her since 5.10.13 at 11am. Thank you.
