Police investigating the disappearance of a 16-year-old girl in Blackpool are searching a garage in the resort.

Paige Chivers, 16, walked out of her family home in Bispham on 23 August 2007 following an argument.

Despite repeated appeals, there have been no confirmed sightings of the teenager in the last 16 months.

Officers are still looking for Paige and are searching a garage on Cranbrook Avenue in Bispham as part of one line of inquiry, police said.

Leaflets with details of her disappearance are also being handed out to people living in the area.

Paige was last seen carrying a blue or purple suitcase and boarding the number 11 bus at Ashfield Road, Bispham.

She is described as white, 5ft 5in tall, with brown hair and a "Playgirl" tattoo on the back of her neck.

A 53-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, both from Blackpool, were arrested in connection with her disappearance in January but were later released without charge.
