‘Screaming’ young girl ‘seen trying to escape car before being dragged back in’

Detectives are urgently appealing for witnesses as they investigate a possible abduction in North London.

Metropolitan Police officers were called at 6.40pm on Saturday, September 18 by a member of the public who reported that they had seen a young girl screaming for help while in a car, MyLondon reports.

The girl is described as black, aged approximately 13 to 15 years old, with braided hair. She was said to be wearing red tracksuit bottoms and a red hoody.

The girl was reported to be in the front passenger seat and attempted to get out of the car through an open rear window. She was reportedly pulled back into the black Mercedes car.

The girl was spotted in the vehicle in Plevna Crescent in Haringey, north London, before the car turned around and drove in the direction of St Ann's Road, before turning into Frinton Road.

The man driving the car was described as a black male with dreadlocks.

Detective Inspector Lyndsey Billaney, of North Area Command Unit, said: “We are taking this report very, very seriously and are pursuing a number of urgent lines of enquiry to try to identify the girl and establish her welfare.

“Anyone who has information that could help us, or who thinks they know the girl described and has information as to her whereabouts, is urged to call 101 ref CAD 6314/18 Sept immediately.

“I also urge residents to check dashcam and doorbell footage for any possible sightings of a black Mercedes in the area.”
