Police were today urgently searching for a 14-year-old girl who is believed to have disappeared with a 'professional fraudster' more than twice her age.
Schoolgirl [redacted] and former car dealer John Bush, 35, both of Doncaster, South Yorkshire, are thought to have been in the Highfields area of the town over the past two days.
The teenager was last seen on Monday at 2.30pm at [redacted] in Adwick in her school uniform, although South Yorkshire Police said it was unlikely that she will still be wearing this. [redacted] was described by the force as being [redacted]. Bush was described as white, of stocky build and having receding dark blonde hair.
Her mother [redacted], who lives in [redacted] area of the town, said on Facebook: 'Please come home, my gorgeous girl. Am so worried about you. I love you so much. 'Because, after all, the minute, the instant, charges are laid we must forget all about the name we've seen plastered all over the media. Nothing that identifies her will be permitted. She will be referred to only as 'the schoolgirl'.
Such is our justice system...
