Paige Chivers left the family home on 23 August 2007 following a row
A 40-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder following the disappearance of a Lancashire schoolgirl has been released on bail, police said.
Paige Chivers, 16, has not been seen since she left her home in Bispham, near Blackpool, in August 2007 following a family argument.
The man from Bispham was arrested on Tuesday and questioned by detectives.
Paige is described as white, 5ft 5in tall, with brown hair and a Playgirl tattoo on the back of her neck.
Lancashire Police are continuing to appeal for information about the disappearance of Paige, who will be 17 next week.
Paige was last seen carrying a blue or purple suitcase and boarding the number 11 bus at Ashfield Road, Bispham, on 23 August 2007.
Two months later her father Frank and sister Maddison made the first of several appeals to the youngster to get in touch with them.
