Two 14-year-old teenage schoolgirls, Jayden Hassan and J’Nea Beecher, have vanished after telling their parents they were having a sleepover at each other’s homes, as they were last seen leaving J’Nea’s house in Nunhead, South London, on Monday afternoon.

According to Daily Sun UK, their parents launched a desperate public appeal for help to track the girls down.

36-year-old Jayden’s mum, Terrie Mulholland, told local paper: “She was happy and excited when she left.”

It was gatheted that the teens left Nunhead at around 4pm on their way to Teen Fest – an underage dance club event in South Norwood and were given a 9:00pm curfew.

Ms Mulholland added: “Someone said they saw her at Teen Fest, but then several other people said they heard the girls were going to Essex to meet with some boys they were speaking to. Jayden’s a teenager – she’s not perfect, but she’s not a runaway.”

46-year-old J’Nea’s mum, Samantha Brown, added: “We just want her to come home safely, she’s not in any trouble.”

Jayden is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall with green/blue eyes and curly frizzy shoulder length hair. She has a small silver nose ring and was last seen wearing a white crop top and denim blue jean shorts.

She also had a yellow/orange cropped jumper with a black strip down each arm and black pumps with white soles.

J’Nea is described as black, 5ft 11ins tall of slim build. She has natural afro shoulder length black hair and was wearing a white camisole top, pink shorts with rips and black trainers.

A Metropolitan Police appeal said: “Officers are asking anyone who knows the current whereabouts of Jayden and J’Nea to call police on 101.”
