Officers are now asking for Mr Peach or Leona to get in touch.

The public has also been urged to come forward with any information about their whereabouts.

Detective Inspector Dave Pebworth said: "We are supporting her friends and family and are appealing to Leona to contact home so that they know that she is safe and well.

"We would ask that anyone who is with her encourages Leona to contact her family in Newton Abbot.

"Leona if you are reading this, we want you to know you are not in any trouble, please contact us, or someone you trust, to let us know you are safe."

Leona is about 4ft 9in tall (1.45m) and of slim to medium build, according to police.

She is white, with hazel-coloured eyes and long light-brown hair which reaches the middle of her back.

She has a bald patch above her right ear.

When she was last seen, Leona is believed to have been wearing a dark-coloured fur coat, flip-flops, and grey or blue leggings, or skinny trousers.

The youngster was carrying a pink bag.
