Police have stepped up their search for a missing 15-year-old girl by releasing CCTV images of her visiting a supermarket in Melton with another girl.
Officers have issued an urgent appeal for information about the whereabouts of Kristina Ginova after becoming ‘increasingly concerned’ about her welfare.
She was seen on Tuesday leaving the cinema at the Meridian Leisure Park in Leicester at 1.45pm and the new sighting, believed to be at Sainsbury’s in Nottingham Road, was later that evening.
Police also received a report of her crossing the road in Norman Way, Melton – towards Beckmill Court – shortly before 2pm yesterday (Wednesday).
The supermarket CCTV images released by police today show Kristina in the company of a blonde-haired girl between 6pm and 7pm on Tuesday.
Kristina is 5ft 5ins tall with long, dark hair and has tanned skin. When she was seen she was wearing grey leggings.
Police believe that she is still in the area of Melton and are appealing for anyone who has information regarding her whereabouts to get in touch.
Det Sgt Imran Isat, Leicestershire Police’s Missing Persons team, said: “I am encouraged by the sighting of Kristina on CCTV and would like to appeal directly to her to get in touch and let us know she is safe and well.
“Equally, I would ask the girl pictured with Kristina to contact us.
“Let us know where Kristina is so we can check she is ok.”
Anyone who has seen Kristina or thinks they know who she might be with is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident 332 of May 21.
