Inspector Lee Hillyard, said: “Jorja was last seen on the number 2A bus which travels between Runcorn and Chester.

“She was due to get off the bus at Helsby High, but failed to do so, and appears to have continued travelling towards Chester.

“As part of our enquiries we’ve keen to hear from anyone who was on the bus and thinks they may have seen Jorja or knows where she got off.

“The same goes for anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of her since she disappeared.

“I would also like to appeal directly to Jorja, to ask her to get in touch, you’ve done nothing wrong, your family are just worried about you and want you home.”
