Police in England’s Cambridgeshire seek help locating missing teenager

Police in eastern England are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a 17-year-old girl who was born in Latvia.

Alisa Dmitrijeva of Wisbech was last seen the evening of Aug. 30. Wisbech is in Cambridgeshire and is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of London. The following day, Sept. 1, she was seen in Friars Street in Kings Lynn, which is about 20 kilometers northeast of Wisbech.

She was reported missing by a family member on Sept. 6, according to a Sept. 13 press release from Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

““It is not unusual for Alisa to stay away from home for several days but she always stays in touch with her family,” Det. Inspector Jon McAdam said. “We are concerned for her welfare and I would urge anyone who saw her on the day or has seen her since to contact police.”

Police also are asking Dmitrijeva to let them know where she is.

Dmitrijeva is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall (1.67 meters), with collar length dark brown hair with blonde highlights.

Police have been checking closed circuit television footage and making house-to-house inquiries in the Wisbech area.

Persons with information about Dmitrijeva’s whereabouts may telephone Cambridgeshire police at +44 0345 456 456 4 or, anonymously in the United Kingdom, through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
