A DESPERATE father is urging his daughter to get in touch after she disappeared at the weekend.

Stacey-Lee Hayler has not been seen since 8pm on Saturday when she left a friend’s house in Dunsbury Way, Leigh Park.

The 17-year-old told him she was going to catch a bus home to Bracklesham Bay, West Sussex.

But she didn’t turn up and her father Colin and 21-year-old sister Lisa are desperately worried.

Mr Hayler, 45, said: ‘We are so worried about her. She has only just turned 17 and she’s young and naive for her age.

‘None of her friends has heard from her and she hasn’t gone to see her mum in Nottingham. This is totally out of character for her now that she has moved down to be with me. She is at South Downs College and things are going well.

‘There was no row, no argument. Even is there was something wrong she knows that we can talk things through.

‘Nothing is bad enough that you can’t sort it out.’

Police have been speaking to Stacey-Lee’s friends and family to establish her whereabouts as well as checking areas where she is known to visit.

Stacey is 5ft 3in with shoulder-length brown hair which is usually worn in a pony tail.

She was last seen wearing a blue jacket, white hooded sweat shirt and black tracksuit bottoms.

Anyone with information can call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1164 of 8/4.
