First published in News

A TEENAGE girl has gone missing from home in East Yorkshire, sparking a police appeal for information.

Abigail Tuck, 14, was last seen at 2pm last Sunday. She was due to go to her grandmother’s house at 4.30pm but did not turn up.

Police say it is thought she is with a man or boy from York.

The two had been to visit some of his relatives and left their house at around 8pm that day.

They told relatives they were getting a bus to Haxby but neither has been home since.

Abigail, of Burton Gates, in High Catton, near Stamford Bridge, is one of three missing people currently being sought by police.

Unconnected searches were last night ongoing for missing Harrogate pensioner Graham Roskell, last seen a week ago, and for York man Ian Robinson, last seen by his flatmate more than a week ago.

Abigail is described as 5ft 6ins tall, slim with blonde hair with distinctive pink flashes in it. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, a pink top and trainers.

Meanwhile, specialist officers are continuing to look for Mr Roskell, who was seen on CCTV leaving Harrogate District Hospital, where he was receiving treatment for an infection which had spread to his brain, at about 8am last Saturday.

Mr Roskell, 65, is described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing black leather lace-up shoes, olive green trousers and a cream and green horizontally striped rugby-style top. He was wearing a black watch and carrying a rolled-up, navy, fleecy knee-length dressing gown.

The family told The Press that they are confident Mr Roskell will be found and expressed their gratitude to the public and police for their help.

Police are also looking for missing Mr Robinson, 47, of Newborough Street in York. He was reported missing at 4pm on Thursday but was last seen near his home on Tuesday, October 30. He is white, with a medium build and short light brown hair. When last seen, he was wearing jeans and a grey coat.

Anyone with information on any of the missing people should phone police on 101.
