Police are appealing for information to help find two teenage girls who have gone missing from Gloucester.

Briyanna, aged 15, and Elizabeth, aged 14, were last seen leaving an address in Coney Hill Road at around 4.30pm on Saturday 16 December.

Although they phoned a family member at around 9pm later last night, they have not made contact since.

Officers believe the two girls are together and may have travelled to the Enfield area of London via Cheltenham.

They are now asking for anybody who may have seen them to come forward.

Briyanna is described as being a black girl, 5ft 5in in height, and of a medium build.

She has long braided hair and was wearing black ripped jeans, a shirt and a pink, washed-out jacket.

Elizabeth is a mixed race girl, approximately 5ft in height, and of a slim build.

She has black hair which she wears slicked down and was last seen wearing grey jogging bottoms, a black and grey jumper and a pink tie-dyed jacket.

Anyone with information about the two girls’ whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101, quoting incident 98 of 17 December. If you are with the girls at the time of calling, please ring 999.
