Update: The police have confirmed that Shanice has been found safe and would like to thank everyone who shared their post on social media.
Police are apealing for information to help trace a teenage girl reported missing in the city.
Shanice Henry was last seen leaving her grandmother’s home address in Moredun Park View at around 2.30pm on Saturday 22nd May but did not provide any information as to where she was going.
The 15-year-old has since failed to return to her home address in Balmwell Terrace. However, it is believed she is still within the city and may be staying with friends.
Enquiries to establish Shanice’s current whereabouts are ongoing and anyone with information that can assist officers is asked to come forward.
Shanice is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall with a slim build, blonde shoulder-length hair and hair extensions. She was last seen wearing burgundy leggings, white Converse trainers, a navy denim jacket, a raspberry-coloured strapless top and was in possession of a blue Nike bag.
Sergeant Graeme Monteath said:
Shanice knows Edinburgh very well and is extremely confident and happy to travel around the city independently.
While we believe she is currently with people she knows, we are keen to locate her as soon as possible to ensure her safety and wellbeing.
Anyone who can assist us with our investigation is asked to contact police immediately.
Those with information can contact the Police on 101.
