Police hold fears for the safety of a 15-year-old girl missing from the Manawatu town of Feilding.
Jamie Beardsmore was last seen leaving a family member's house in Seddon Street about 8.30am on Wednesday.
She is described as European with a petite frame and blonde shoulder-length hair.
Police say she could appear younger than her years because of her slight frame and height.
She may be wearing a black Angry Birds hoodie, black trackpants and black school shoes and carrying a blue mink blanket with dolphins on it.
Police are urging anyone who may have seen her to contact them.
