A TEENAGE girl who left her Rotherham home two days ago could be in Luton, say police.

Tabitha Zhakata (14) was last seen on Saturday at around 2.30pm when she left her home in the Dinnington area to go and meet a friend.

She was reported missing the next day by her sister after she failed to return home, said a police spokeswoman.

"It’s possible that Tabitha has left South Yorkshire and we have reason to believe she’s travelled to Luton," she said.

Tabitha is around 5ft 7ins tall, medium build and is described as "looking older than 14" and could be wearing black ripped jeans and a black jacket with a hood.

If you have any information which could help police find her, call 101. The incident number is 13 of January 26.
