A teenager missing in Manchester has been found safe and well.

Greater Manchester Police say 18 year old Adelle Gallen turned up at her family home after vanishing on a night out in the city on Monday night.



Adelle Gallen, aged 18, was out with a friend on Monday 31 October 2011.

At about 4am the following morning, Tuesday 1 November 2011, the pair were on Oxford Road, near to the Palace Theatre, trying to get a taxi back to Chorlton, when Adelle walked off from her friend.

Adelle is described as having olive skin, 5ft 2in tall, with dark shoulder length hair. She has a beauty spot on her left cheek and when she was last seen she was wearing a black dress and red high-heeled shoes.

She has never been missing before and was expected at work in Sale at 11am today, Wednesday 2 November 2011, but failed to show up.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Larkin, of south Manchester CID, said: "Adelle's family are fraught with worry and I am keen to hear from anyone who has seen her since she went missing.

We know she and a friend were trying to get a taxi back to Chorlton in the early hours of Tuesday morning but they have become separated and she has not been seen since.

There is a CCTV image of Adelle walking along Oxford Road with two men at around 4.30am.  I would appeal to these men to come forward as they may have vital information into her last known movements.

If anyone has any information that can help, or if Adelle is hearing or reading this appeal, please call your mum, a friend or the police and let someone know you are safe and well."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 6153, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
