Find Tia

Tia Sharp is a 12 year old girl who has been missing from New Addington since 3rd August.

She was last seen leaving her grandmother's home in The Lindens on Fieldway at around midday on Friday after telling relatives she was going shopping in Croydon. She has never gone missing before.

She is white, 4ft 5in in height and of slim build. She was dressed in a yellow vest top with a motif on the front, grey skinny jeans or leggings and black high top trainers with a pink Nike tick and she was wearing FCUK glasses.

My thoughts are with Tia's family - as a parent of three young children myself, I can imagine how they must be feeling. Anyone who has seen Tia or has any information about her whereabouts should call the police information room on 020 8721 4005 or Missing People on 116000.

I would also like to pay tribute to the hundreds of people in New Addington who are helping with the search, particularly the excellent New Addington Pathfinders who are co-ordinating the volunteer effort from the Octagon on Central Parade. New Addington is often referred to as a deprived area but there is a stronger sense of community than in many other areas of the borough.
