Police Up Search For Missing 13 Yr Old
23 November 2011, 17:45
Derbyshire police are continuing their search for a 13-year-old girl who has been missing for almost two weeks.
A special inquiry room has been established at Buxton Police Station to co-ordinate the search for Alisha Moss, who was last seen in the Whaley Bridge area at around 4.30pm on Thursday, November 10 2011.
Today, officers will search the Goyt Valley for any sign that the youngster may have walked through the area on the day she disappeared.
Inquires with friends and family in Warsop, near Mansfield, Leek and Staffordshire are also ongoing.
Chief Superintendent Peter Lewis, who is in charge of policing in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales, said: “We are working hard to make sure that Alisha is found safe and well.
“It has now been almost two weeks since she was last seen and we are keen for her to make contact with us, or with her family, to let us know that she is alright.
“Alisha needs to know she is not in any kind of trouble, we are only concerned for her safety.”
Chief Supt Lewis said that police had received several reported sightings of Alisha but anyone who believes they have seen the youngster should call officers.
He added: “We are keeping an open mind as to where Alisha may have gone. She may have walked to Buxton or travelled on to other parts of the country so our inquiry is not merely focused on the High Peak area.”
Alisha is white, around 5ft 3in tall, of slim build with long, straight, dyed black hair. Although she is 13, she appears older and may be mistaken for someone in their late teens.
Anyone who sees Alisha should call the Derbyshire police 101 non-emergency number.
