THE mum of a missing 15-year-old girl from Swindon has pleaded for her to come home safely.

Ellie-Mae Hackett, aged 15, has not been seen since she was reported missing on Sunday.

She was last seen at around 5pm in the town centre in Swindon near the Groves Company Inn. However, there are reports she has been seen in the Bristol area.

Mum Simone appealed directly to Ellie, saying: "We are growing increasingly worried and we are desperate to hear from her. We are out searching in the hope that someone has seen her.

"Ellie, if you are reading this then please get in touch with someone to let us know you are ok.

"We are all so worried and we just want to have you safely back home.

"Please, please Ellie, just let us know that you are safe. We love you and we just want you back."

Police are urging anyone with information, including anyone who may have seen Ellie-Mae, to call Wiltshire Police on 101
