Police are appealing to the public for help finding a teenager from Bicester who has been missing for nearly three weeks.
Linda Finau, 16, pictured, from Ambrosden, has been missing since Friday January 5.
Roselyn Roqara, Linda’s mother, issued a direct appeal to her daughter through a Thames Valley Police statement.
She said: “Hi Lewa, please, wherever you are, come home.
“We love and miss you.”
A CCTV image, captured on Saturday January 13 between 9.15am and midday, shows Linda carrying a large pink bag in a McDonalds restaurant in Queen Street, Nuneaton in Warwickshire.
It is believed she caught a train to London from Nuneaton later that day.
The teenager also has connections to Banbury, Coventry and Hartshill in Warwickshire.
Linda is described as 5ft 7ins tall, slim, has long blonde hair with dark brown/black roots and is British/Fijian.
PC Sally Yates, based at Banbury, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who has seen or had any contact with Linda.
“We are concerned for her welfare due to her age and the length of time she has been missing.
“I would like to directly appeal to Linda if you see this appeal please contact police immediately so that we can check you are safe and well.”
Anyone with information should call the Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting reference 43180011872.
