Community group New Addington Pathfinders (NAP) have printed over 70,000 posters, that have been distributed across Croydon and surrounding areas. Kirsty Pearce of NAP said: “We have been co-ordinating searches with the police who have told us where to search, how to search and what to so with anything we find.”

Missing Tia Sharp left in care of ex–prisoner – The step–grandfather of a missing schoolgirl served time in jail after being caught with a machete.

Tia Sharp: Family are still trying to establish if missing girl left grandmother’s home alone on August 4
