Police appeal to public to help find missing York schoolgirls

North Yorkshire Police today repeated an appeal for any information regarding the disappearance of two teenaged girls in York.

15 year-old Thi Phan and 14 year-old Tram Le were last seen on Sunday July 9th at around 12:30pm, near the York Minster.

Thi Phan (left) was last spotted wearing a blue and white top, and black trousers. Tram Le (right) was last seen wearing a baggy shirt and jeans, authorities say.

The girls, orginally from Vietnam but now living in York, are both around 5 foot, 2 inches tall.

Chief Inspector Al Wescott, one of the officers working on the case, has asked students to urgently contact the police if they have any details on the girls’ whereabouts, saying: “The public’s help could be vital, and we’d urge anyone who thinks they may have seen the girls to get in touch immediately.

Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could help our investigation.”

Wescott added that officers were working “around the clock” to try and find the missing schoolgirls.
