Newham family makes plea to find missing 14-year-old schoolgirl who disappeared on walk home


A family in East London is desperately searching for a 14-year-old girl who has been missing since Thursday October 7.

The missing girl, identified only as Hafiza, was last seen on security cameras leaving her school in Stratford.

She was wearing her school uniform along and a black jacket with a fluffy hood, as well as black lace-up boots.

The family of missing schoolgirl Hafiza have asked the public to print and spread this official flyer

Hafiza’s brother told My London that she did not take her usual route back home and that the family had reason to believe she may have been lured away by someone, but at present was not able to divulge any information about possible suspects.

“We’re still looking for her,” he said, urging anyone with any information to come forward by calling 101 and using the reference number: CAD 6344/07.

The family is calling on the public to form search parties in their localities and go door-to-door to hand out official flyers.

They are also calling on social media users to spread the hashtag #FindHafizah in the hope that it will lead to information.
