Fears are growing for the safety of a Somali girl, who lives in Holland with her family and disappeared last week on a visit to London.

15-year-old Hani Iman was in London with her mother and sister to visit an aunt in Wembley.

Hani told her family she was visiting another aunt in Putney last Friday and, after buying a travelcard, went down to southwest London.

After staying with her aunt for a short time she left about 6pm, saying she was heading to Shepherds Bush.

She has not been seen since.

Police said she had never gone missing before.

"She only knows family members in Britain and all of these have been contacted by police," said Scotland Yard.

Hani was carrying a mobile phone but could not use it as the phone does not have a SIM car.

Police said she was not familiar with London and was not carrying any money.

She is described as black, about 5" tall, of stocky build and with shoulder-length black hair.

When last seen, Hani was wearing a long black jumper and brown boots and had a pink stud in her nose and each ear.
