When Dorcas Ibandula failed to come home from college on Thursday (September 7), concerns were raised to police.

This sparked an appeal to help find the missing 16-year-old girl from Tulse Hill.

Dorcas is black, with long black braided hair and of slim build. She was wearing an above the knee black and white dress and a military-style khaki jacket.

She is known to frequent Croydon, Wandsworth, Kennington and Peckham.

Officers are increasingly concerned for Dorcas’ wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on her whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000.
