“We are very concerned for the welfare of these two girls and we have officers working around the clock trying to locate them.
“If anyone thinks that they have seen the girls then I would urge them to get in touch immediately.
“Both speak very little English so I would also appeal to anyone from the Vietnamese community who may have been approached by them or who may have some information about the girls to also get in touch.
“This can be done in confidence either directly to the police via 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
“Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could help our investigation.”
If you have seen the two girls, or have any information which could help us to locate them please contact 101 immediately, select option 1 and speak to the Force Control Room.
