Hunt for missing girls, 15 and 13, who police say have gone off together

Police are searching for two teenage girls who they believe went missing together.

Alaya, 15, and Maya,13, were last seen at their Bristol homes at the weekend.

Maya failed to return home at the agreed time on Saturday, June 26 after being dropped off at a friend’s house.

Alaya did not come home after going out with friends on the afternoon of Sunday, June 27.

The police have not released the teenage girls’ surnames.

There have been reported sightings of the pair in the Southmead and Lawrence Weston areas of Bristol, but they may also travel into the city centre and shopping areas.

Maya is about 5ft 4ins tall and slim with long blonde hair. She was dressed in black – leggings, T-shirt and jacket.

Alaya is about 5ft 7ins tall and slim with long brown hair dyed blonde at the ends and has a septum piercing.

She was also wearing black clothing – a black vest top, hoody and skirt – with white trainers.

The girls may have changed their clothing since.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokeswoman said: “If you know where Alaya and/or Maya are now, call 999 quoting reference 5221143474 (Alaya) and 5221143449 (Maya).

“If you have any other information which could help to trace them, ring 101 and give the same reference numbers.

“Maya and Alaya – if you see this, please get in touch with family or call 101. We’re all concerned about you and just want to make sure you are safe.”
