Paige left her Bispham home in August
The father of a teenager who has been missing for four months has urged her to get in contact at Christmas, saying he is "worried sick".

Paige Chivers, 15, walked out of her family home in Bispham, Blackpool, Lancashire, in August after a row.

She was last seen boarding a bus at Ashfield Road, Bispham.

Frank Chivers said: "Having Paige back would be the best Christmas present ever. I just want her back for good. Please just come home."

Rewards have been put forward for information about her disappearance and poster put up across Blackpool.

'Increasingly concerned'

Det Ch Insp Neil Esseen, of Lancashire police, said the hunt for Paige was a "massive inquiry".

He added: "We are taking this missing person investigation extremely seriously, due to Paige's age and vulnerability.

"It is almost four months since Paige was last seen and both the police and her family are growing increasingly concerned.

"We want nothing more than to find her and reunite her with her family, and would ask anyone with any information to contact us and enable us to bring this family back together."

The teenager is white, 5ft 5in (1.65m) tall, with brown hair and a "Playgirl" tattoo on the back of her neck.

She usually wears gold hoop earrings and has two small sovereign rings.
