Serious concerns for missing Alstonville teenager
POLICE hold serious concerns for the welfare of a teenage girl who went missing from her home in Alstonville yesterday morning.
Police said Clancy Ellis, 15, was last seen walking along Maple Drive about 10.30am yesterday, after leaving school.
She was reported missing by her parents after being notified that she left school and didn't return home.
Police from Richmond Local Area Command are conducting investigations into Clancy's disappearance and hold serious concerns for her welfare.
Investigators have been told that Clancy left her medication at home and left her school with no access to money, and limited clothing.
Clancy is known to frequent the Alstonville shops, however police have been told she may be travelling north or south along the Australian coast.
Clancy's sister, Mag Allis, posted this message - along with a photo of Clancy - on Facebook, which has been shared widely.
"This is my sister Clancy Ellis and she is currently missing. Last seen today, Wednesday 10th June around 10.30am in Alstonville, NSW. She is wearing black doc marten boots with red laces and carrying a maroon fjallraven kanken backpack. She is 15 years old. Around 175cm tall and slim build. Has dyed red hair and green blue eyes. We think she has a small amount of money and could be travelling via public transport to a city such as Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne. Please share this and keep a look out. We love her very much and need to know if she is safe."
Clancy is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 165 to 170cm tall, with a thin build, blue eyes, long dyed red hair and a pierced nose in her right nostril.
She was last seen wearing a school uniform described as a maroon zip-up hooded jumper, grey chequered shirt, and wearing black leather shoes with red ribbons as laces.
Police urge anyone with information, or who know the whereabouts of Clancy, to contact police via Crime Stoppers.
