Cherise Barfoot has been missing from her home in Durham since December 27.


Concerns are growing for the welfare of a 15-year-old girl who may be in Bromley after going missing from her family home last month.

Cherise Barfoot was reported missing from her home, in Cockfield, Durham, on December 27 and her whereabouts remains a mystery despite a police appeal on a fortnight ago.

Police believe the teenager may be in the London region, in particular Haringey and Edmonton, but she has family links to Bromley.

She is described as a light-skinned black girl, with shoulder-length blonde hair, of slim build and around 5’ 2” tall.

Cherise was last seen wearing a black padded jacket with a fur hood, grey tracksuit bottoms and black Nike trainers with a purple logo.

Pc Richard Teall, from Bromley’s missing persons unit, said: “We’d appeal to anyone who thinks they may have seen Cherise or knows where she is to get in touch as soon as possible.

“Cherise, if you are reading this, then please get in touch with police, social services or the Coram Voice charity who’ll be able to assist you and give you the advice you need.

“Your family are extremely concerned for you and we just want to make sure that you are safe and well.”

Anyone with information on Cherise’s whereabouts should call police on 020 8284 8766, or call Missing People on 116 000. The Coram Voice charity can be contacted on 0808 800 5792.
