Police are continuing to search for a teenage girl who has been missing for more than a week.

Julia Skala, 16, reportedly first left her home in Mitcham, south-west London, at around 1pm on January 8.

An appeal was first launched on Sunday (January 14), and a further one has been pushed by the Metropolitan Police to find her.

The girl reportedly has links to Camden and Islington, as well as Lambeth.

Over the past eight days, officers have carried out “extensive enquiries” including recovering CCTV from the area.

When Julia left her home, she was wearing a black North Face jacket, black trousers and white Nike trainers. She was carrying a black Nike rucksack.

Superintendent Josh Laughton, from the local policing team in south-west London, said: "Julia's family have told us it is unusual for her to be away from home for this long.

“While there's no evidence to suggest she has come to harm, we are growing increasingly concerned about her welfare.

"We use a range of tactics to trace the movements of a missing person, however despite our enquiries, we still have no indication of where she is.

"Julia has links to Lambeth, Camden and Islington. It's likely she would have travelled by public transport. I would ask anyone who thinks they may have seen her over the past week to come forward immediately."

Anyone who sees her within recent moments should call 999 immediately, quoting the reference 24MIS000879. If you have any non-urgent information which can help, call 101.
