POLICE are appealing for help tracing a missing teenager last seen in Charminster.
Alice Bendall, who is also known as Alex and is 18, was reported missing at around 3pm on Sunday (February 12).
They were last seen at around 6pm on Saturday (February 11) in East Hill.
Alice is described as five feet six inches tall, of slim build, with short brown hair and may be wearing a green body warmer, dark coloured jeans, blue trainers with orange laces.
Inspector David Parr, of Dorset Police, said: “It is completely out of character for Alice to disappear for this length of time without any contact.
“We are searching the area, but are hoping that somebody might have information about Alice’s whereabouts that could direct our search efforts.
“I would urge residents in East Hill, Westleaze, Vicarage Lane and Mill Lane with home CCTV to please check whether they have any footage that might show Alice walking past.
“Also, I urge any vehicle owners in these streets who have dashcam fitted that records even when the vehicle is not moving to check for anything of relevance.”
Anyone with information or knowledge as to Alice’s whereabouts should contact Dorset Police via www.dorset.police.uk/contact or by calling 101, quoting incident number 12:319.
