Published Last updated

Police in the south west of France are appealing for witnesses to help find a girl, 16, who disappeared last week. 

The teenager, named Océane, lives in La Magistère (a village in Tarn-et-Garonne, but on the border with Lot-et-Garonne), and was last seen on Friday May 17. 

She did not turn up to school on Friday, nor did she return home after leaving the house that morning. 

Local police and gendarmerie forces made a social media post on Wednesday (May 22) evening, asking for any witnesses who may have seen her to come forward.

The post says Océane was wearing a black dress with yellow and red checks and stripes on the day she disappeared.

She is between 1.50m and 1.60m tall, has a slim build and long chestnut brown hair. Photos of her can be seen on the post. 

Anyone with information about Océane should contact the local gendarmerie on 05 63 29 60 50 (the line is open 24 hours per day).
