Concern is growing for a 16-year-old girl last seen in Roker a week ago.
Northumbria Police is appealing for help to trace Naomi Mather.
Officers are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare and so police are now appealing for help from the public.
She is described as young looking for her age, 4ft 11ins tall, of slight build, with long brown hair usually worn tied up, and blue eyes.
When she went missing, she was wearing a grey skirt and pink anorak but is likely to be wearing different clothing now.
Naomi or anyone who knows her whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log 1403 04/05/18.
