Concerns are growing for the welfare of a 16-year-old girl who has been missing from Hitchin for a week – and police have today appealed for help finding her.

Alana Iloba was last seen at home at 11.45am on Wednesday, February 21, and has links to Knebworth and Luton.

Police have described her as a mixed-race girl, about 5ft 6in tall and of medium build. She has a loose brown afro that comes to just below the ear, but she tends to wear her hair in a high bun on top of her head.

She was last seen wearing navy jeggings with white flowers, and a bright-red puffa jacket with a brown hood.

Officers are growing concerned for her welfare. Anyone who has seen Alana or knows where she might be should call Herts police on 101, quoting ISR 513 of February 27.
