A teenager with links to Bolton, Chorley and Manchester is missing from East Lancashire.

Ellie Ogden, who is 16-years-old, has not been seen since 6.30pm on Friday.

The teenager was last seen on St James' Row in Burnley, a small street in the town centre.

Police have said it is possible Ellie may still be in Burnley but they believe she may have been heading to the Bolton area.

A spokesperson for the police said: "Ellie is a white female, 5foot 5inches tall, of slim build, with long dark hair, a tanned complexion and wears heavy make up.

"It is believed that Ellie is possibly wearing a red puffer style jacket, blue pants and black boots.

"She may also be carrying a black overnight bag.

"We are carrying out enquiries to locate Ellie and will be in contact with the relevant police areas but help from the public often proves quite useful and enables us to cast the net far and wide."

Anyone with information should contact Burnley police quoting log reference 47 of January 18.
