Police have renewed their appeal for help in finding a teenage girl who has been missing from Bedford since Monday (28 December).

Madison McKellar, 15, who was reported missing earlier this week, has been found safe and well.

However, 16-year-old Summer Southam remains missing and police are continuing to appeal for information to help return her home safely

Summer was last seen in Bedford town centre on Monday (28 December) at around 3.25pm.

She is described as 5’ 4”, slim and has shoulder-length red/purple hair.

She was last seen wearing faded-grey skinny jeans, a grey top, black trainers and a peach coloured shoulder bag.

She has links to Southampton, Birmingham and London.

PC Sarah Barnes, from Bedfordshire Police’s missing person unit, said: “We are continuing to ask for the public’s help in finding Summer.

“With the freezing weather we are currently experiencing, it’s important we are able to bring her home as quickly as possible.

“If you think you may have seen them or know of her whereabouts please call us on 101.”

Anyone with any information is asked to report it via Bedfordshire Police’s website, quoting reference number MPC/2895/20.
