At the time Darcie went missing, she was with 16-year-old Hafsa Mourdoude, 16, who was found safe and well in London on Saturday (November 10).

Darcie is described as olive-skinned, 5’3” tall, medium build with black hair which is sometimes tied back.

When she was last seen she was wearing a short burgundy jacket with black fur-trimmed hood, black leggings and pink trainers. She was carrying a black bag.

She is not believed to have a phone or money with her but is believed to have caught a train to London the day she went missing.

She has links to the Kings Cross, Maida Vale and Hackney areas, as well as links to East Sussex.

Detective Chief Inspector Amy Buffoni, who is overseeing the investigation, said: “We are delighted that Hafsa has been found safe and well but we are still really concerned about Darcie and we are really keen to make contact with her.

“Although we do not believe she is still in Surrey, we would like to speak to anyone who may have seen her leaving Thorpe Park or spotted her at a local train station.

“We are obviously also really keen to speak to anyone who may have seen her since or with any information about where she might be.

“She is extremely vulnerable due to her age and we are putting in significant resources necessary to carry out the numerous enquiries to locate her.

“This includes working with our neighbouring forces, including Kent, Sussex and the Metropolitan Police, as well as British Transport Police. We are also working with Missing People.

“We are extremely keen to establish that Darcie is safe and well, so if you know where she is, please get in touch.”
