She is thought to have travelled from Leeds to Lancaster by train yesterday with Hamzar Ali. He is aged 25 and has links to Lancaster and Manchester.

Branadine is described as black, about 5ft 6in tall and of medium build with long black braided hair.

Leeds District CID’s Det Insp Dave McDougal said: “We are very concerned for Branadine’s welfare and urgently need to find her and check that she is okay.

“We are liaising with our colleagues in Lancashire and Manchester and would like to hear from anyone who has seen her or Hamzar Ali or who has any information that could assist in tracing her.

“She has never been missing from home before and her family are understandably concerned and want to know she is safe.”

Anyone with information is asked to ring Leeds District CID on 101, quoting log reference 1820 of February 14.
