Police in Christchurch are appealing for help in finding a teenage runaway, saying they are concerned for her well-being.

Azaria Delia Field was reported missing on 30 October from an address in West Coast Road in West Melton after briefly turning up at her school, Hagley High.

Senior Constable Gary Malzard says the 15-year-old has run away before, but this is the longest period she has been away.

She has placed updates on social networking site Facebook - the latest on Monday.

Mr Malzard says Azaria Field is 167 centimetres tall, very thin, with long brown hair and large brown eyes and often wears bright red lip stick.

Police want to hear from the girl or anyone who has information on her whereabouts.
