    I hope this girl gets found quickly. Used to live in Croydon.

    She is so beautiful. In the first picture, she looks like a young school girl. In the 2nd, she looks much older.

    Hopefully she is found safe soon.

    The report says that she didn't have her travel card... I assume that is a card that allows her to travel on the bus/train/tube system?

    I guess they are just searching areas where they know she goes but if you got on a bus at New Addington to go to the Whitgift Centre in Croydon you would not go through Coulsdon. Mitcham and Wimbledon are nearer London so again you would go into central Croydon to get there. You would need to get to the centre of Croydon and get a bus there. To get to the Whitgift from New Addington you need a bus. If she got to Croydon surely some one has seen her on the bus or at the bus stop? I don't know if the buses there have surveillance or not but it is possible. They are saying no footage found. I think there is a fair bit of woodland round New Addington. I am also not sure but I think the tram line goes out there as well. It is not likely a girl as young as that would be inconspicious on the tram as you kind of face other people.

    Most people use a think called an Oyster card that they top up. She did not have a pass at all. That is odd - if you were going into Croydon you would use one, usually, I think (though maybe there is nothing in that at all.)

    Does bandeau top mean something different in the UK than it does here?
    She is cute and I really hope she is just lost or off with a friend or something.

    Is she really 4'5"? That is only five inches taller than my seven year old.

    Thanks-when someone says bandeau top I think of something like this-

    I see girls wear that with jeans or a short skirt and it seemed a bit sexy for a 12 year old, but it was sort of a duh moment because I know they make them in less skimpy fashions (though you wouldn't know it from the girls I see ) and since she is tiny I am sure it covers more than a full grown adult.

    However, it is neither here nor there because it has nothing to do with why she is missing Still praying for her and her family.

    Yes it is. Most people would have one. I would have thought she would take it to get to Croydon.
