CONCERNS are growing for the welfare of a Darwen teenager who has not been seen since July 24.

Saskia Baldwin, 15, is believed to be somewhere in Blackpool but was last seen in person in Preston.

She has since been picked up on CCTV at the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool at around 11.30pm on Saturday.

Blackpool Police's Aimee Richardson said: “We are extremely worried about Saskia and are urging anybody who has seen her or knows where she may be to get in touch as soon as possible.

"In particular she may be staying in a hotel in the Blackpool area and we are asking hoteliers who think they may have seen her to get in touch.

“Similarly, we would also urge Saskia herself, if she sees this appeal, to make contact and tell us where she is.”

Saskia is described as being around 5ft 2ins tall, of slim build, with blonde hair worn in a bun which is dyed blue.

She was last seen wearing a black jacket, jeans, a white top and trainers.

Anyone with any information on her whereabouts should call police on on 101, quoting log number 1538 of July 24.
