POLICE are trying to find a missing 17-year-old girl.

Samantha Edwards, from Glastonbury, has not been since Tuesday when she failed to return home from school as expected at 6pm.

Sam is around 5’1” tall with shoulder-length brown hair which is often worn in a ponytail, she has a medium build and when she was last seen she was wearing a pink hooded top with a blue padded waistcoat, cream jogging bottoms, white trainers and carrying a pink handbag.

PC So Robinson, who is involved in the search for Sam, said: “Sam has gone missing before but it is unusual for her to be missing for so long and she doesn’t have any access to money so we are keen to find her and make sure she is ok.

“We know she also has links to the Frome area as well as Glastonbury but I’m asking for people across Somerset to look out for Sam and get in touch with us if they see her.”

If you know where Sam is, or have seen her since she went missing, please contact us on 101 and quote MP937/14.
