POLICE are desperately searching for a missing teen who vanished from a bus stop on her way to meet pals.
Bobbi-Anne McLeod, 18, was last seen leaving her home in Leigham, Plymouth, at around 6pm on Saturday.
She had been due to meet friends in the city centre but failed to show up.
Police searches near where Bobbi-Anne disappeared have ramped up over the past 72 hours.
Officers were today seen carrying out painstaking fingertip searches on grassland.
They are understood to have discovered the teen’s headphones and a pouch of tobacco at a bus stop.
Her mobile phone has also been handed into police, it is reported.
Worried pals have issued a desperate plea for information on a Facebook group aimed at finding Bobbi-Ann.
Amanda Issacs, 34, said the missing girl had been on her way to meet her boyfriend of six months but never showed up.
She added: “It’s going to be 72 hours since her disappearance at 6pm tonight and there’s just no sign of her.
“By the signs of it, it does look like she has been taken from a bus stop because she was due to get on this bus and she never got on it.
“I live next door and I’m a close family friend, she’s not one to just disappear, it’s very odd.
“She’s a very in girl, she is very family orientated, she’s got a boyfriend – he’s ever so nice – and a few friends. She’s just a lovely girl and this is so out of character for her.
“She is 18, but she is very tiny and very slim that she probably looks about 15 in reality.”
Bobbi-Anne had been due to get a bus from Sheepstor Road into the city centre.
She has been described as 4ft 11ins, of a slight build with brown, shoulder-length hair and green eyes.
Police say she has piercings and is believed to have been wearing a grey Nike jumper, black ripped jeans, fishnet tights and light Nike trainers.
Detective Inspector Matt Lawrence said: “We would like to hear from anyone who has seen Bobbi-Anne since she left her home on Saturday, or from anyone who knows of her current whereabouts.
“Bobbi-Anne may be reading this appeal, if you are then please get in touch; You are not in trouble, we just need to know that you are safe and well.”
Anyone with information can call Devon and Cornwall Police on 101 quoting log number 879 for Saturday 20 November.
