TWO teenage sisters have gone missing from a foster home in Goring.
Elesha Joseph, 16, and Olivia Joseph, 15, were last seen when they had supper at about 6pm on Wednesday. When the bedroom they shared was checked later that evening, the girls had gone.
Both are British Jamaicans whose father died in 2003 and their mother in July this year. They had been living in the Caribbean but returned to the United Kingdom and entered foster care three weeks ago.
Both are black and have cornrow plaited hair. Elesha, 5ft 2ins, is thought to be wearing a grey coat and blue jeans. She wears glasses. Olivia, 5ft 3ins, is thought to be wearing a burgundy red coat, an ankle-length skirt and back shoes.
Neither girl is thought to have had money or mobile phones with them when they left.
Detective Inspector Rob Walker, of Worthing CID, said: “Clearly we are keen to find both girls as soon as possible. They have relatives elsewhere in the UK and it may be that they have set off to try to join them.
“We are making extensive enquiries in an effort to trace Elesha and Olivia, but would urge anyone who may have seen them or who knows of their whereabouts to contact police without delay.
“They may do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 101, quoting serial 0458 of 16/10.”
