A TEENAGE girl who disappeared with her older boyfriend is being sought by police.
Nicola Barr, 15, from Caversham, is believed to have run away with 18-year-old Jamie Bloomfield almost a week ago.
The couple are believed to be travelling around the country together.
Police have appealed for the couple or anyone who sees them to get in touch and say they are not treating the case as an abduction.
It is thought that the pair could be in either Leamington Spa or Stoke or in Rochdale, where Mr Bloomfield lives.
Nicola was last seen at her home at 7am on Wednesday last week and was reported missing to police when she failed to return home at 8.30pm that day.
She is described as white, 5ft 6in, slim, with red hair and hazel eyes.
Dc Paul Jacobs said: “We are very keen to trace both Nicola and Jamie, who we believe are together and maybe travelling around the country.
“They have now been missing since Wednesday and we need to trace them to check they are okay as soon as possible.
“There is nothing to suggest Nicola has been removed from her home against her will.
“I would urge anyone who sees Nicola and Jamie to contact us.I would also like to appeal directly to Nicola and Jamie. You are not in any trouble, we are trying to trace you to check your welfare, not to take any action against you.”
Anyone with information should call Thames Valley Police on 101, the non-emergency number, quoting URN 565 25/8.
