Detectives have released new CCTV images of missing teenager Shelley Pratt in a bid to trace her whereabouts.

The stills were taken on Friday 9 November and show 14-year-old Shelley in the company of a young black man walking close to the Reflex Bar.

Just after midnight Shelley's Oyster card was then used to board a Route 60 bus heading towards Coulsdon.

Shelley is seen wearing her school uniform trousers and a distinctive dark purple hooded jumper with the slogan 'I love (heart symbol) London.'

Shelley was then picked up by CCTV at George Street tram stop in Croydon Town Centre at around 9.30pm.

Shelley is described as white and around 5' 6" or 5' 7" inches tall with long brown hair.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dunne, said: "It has now been five weeks since Shelley went missing and concerns for her safety and welfare especially in this extremely cold weather are heightened."

"Shelley has had absolutely no contact with friends or family since her disappearance and it is possible that she may be with someone, perhaps in a house or a flat."

"I am encouraging people, particularly Croydon residents to look closely at the image of the young man seen next to her."

"Do you recognise him or did you see him moments before approaching Shelley, talking to a number of passing girls on the opposite pavement, clearly trying to get their attention?"

"As a result of our appeals we have received a number of unconfirmed sightings during November and December which we are in the process of following up.

"I continue to encourage Croydon residents to be 'nosey neighbours' and be extra vigilant as to the movements of any young people who are new to the area."

"I urge anyone who may have seen Shelley to contact us."

Shelley's parents, Lisa and Tony Pratt, said:"Shellz, please get in touch with us, we are desperate to hear your voice and know that you are safe and well."

"You're not in trouble. We love you and we miss you and just want you home, without you there will be no Christmas."

"Your presents are under the tree waiting for you. We are all missing you like mad. We love you, please please come home."

Anyone with information about Shelley's whereabouts is urged to call the incident room on 020 8721 4906.
