Police investigating a teenage girl's disappearance have been "overwhelmed" by the public response to their appeal. Rosemary Edwards, 15, from Wellington Close, Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire, has not been seen since she left her family home on Tuesday 4 September. Officers are following up more than 50 calls from people who say they saw a girl matching Rosemary's description. They are also scanning CCTV footage from the Dibden Purlieu area in an attempt to trace the schoolgirl.

Supt Barry Talbot, from Hampshire Constabulary, appealed to Rosemary to contact them or the Runaway Peoples Helpline. "One concern we have is that Rosemary may be worried about the reaction she might get from her parents and us," he added. "I would like to reassure her that she has nothing to fear or worry about. She is not in trouble; we just want to hear from her to know that she is safe and well."

Thanks for that Joy, I do hope she contacts her family or the police soon, and that she is somewhere safe.

Prayers an thoughts again for Maddie, and all who love and miss her, that she will soon be found safe and well.

Thoughts and prayers also for all children, lost or in fear, that they find that special someone who will help them find a safe place and people to love and care for them.

Anyone know if there is any news of young Rosemary?

I have not seen anything more on the local news, Daff, about Rosemary. Now just over two weeks.

Thank you to you, and others, for continuing this thread of support.

On BBC news this morning they believe a body found in the New Forest could be that of Rosemary Edwards, she had been missing for nearly 3 weeks. Not yet officially identified but her parents have been informed. She went missing after a family argument.

So Sad

Thinking of her parents and family and friends
