Police are appealing for information as to the whereabouts of three teenagers who went missing on Tuesday night in Lancashire.

Leona Derbyshire, 14, Matej Bulander, 14, and Allyx Queen, 16, were last seen around Chorley Road in the Withnell area of Chorley at about 8.30pm last night, Lancashire Police said.

The force believe the youngsters, who all have links to Blackburn, Coventry and London, are together.

PC Mark Price, of South Police, said: “We are concerned about the welfare of these three children and we need to find them as soon as possible.

“I would ask anybody who sees them or has information about their whereabouts to get in contact with police straight away.

“I would also appeal to Leona, Matej and Allyx, if they see this appeal, to get in contact with police to let us know you are OK.”

Leona is described as white, 5ft 5ins, of a slim build with long brown straight hair and blue eyes.

She was last seen wearing grey North Face bottoms, a grey Adidas top, a black padded coat with a fur hood and white Nike Air max trainers with a black tick.

Matej is white, 5ft 1ins, of a slim build, with brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing a grey Nike tracksuit top and bottoms, a dark grey body warmer and white Nike trainer boots.

Allyx is white, of a medium build, with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing grey bottoms, a darker grey Nike top, and black shiny Alexander McQueen shoes.

When asked for an update, a Lancashire Police spokesperson told Yahoo News UK that the three teens were still missing and the appeal is still live.

Anybody with information is asked to call 101, quoting log 1545 of 20 April, 2021.
