Police are “very concerned” about a missing teenage girl they believe may be with an older man. Naomi Rees, 15, from Rhydyfelin, Pontypridd, South Wales has not been seen since the morning of August 15.

Officers searching for her believe she may be with 20-year-old Tomas Baker, who lives in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

Naomi’s family and friends are worried about about her, and South Wales Police is appealing for Naomi to get in touch to let them know she is safe.

They have also sent a message to Tomas, saying it’s “not too late to do the right thing”.

At 8.06am, further CCTV footage shows her on Bridge Street walking into Ynysangharad War Memorial Park.

Inquiries are continuing to establish where Naomi went after that.
