Police are searching for a 14-year-old Lincolnshire girl who has disappeared with a man she met on the internet.

Clare Haver, from Harrington Street in Bourne, went missing on Saturday after a week-long camping holiday in Skegness with a friend of the same age.

Police said Michael Ellis, 23, believed to be Clare's boyfriend, joined her on holiday without her parents' knowledge.

Detectives have said Mr Ellis has "mental health issues" but there is no indication he is a "threat" to Clare.

The couple are thought to have run away together and were last seen leaving an address in Corby Glenn.

Mother's appeal

Clare is not thought to have access to any money.

Mr Ellis has been known to live at addresses in Lincoln and Grimsby, met Clare through an internet chat site in January.

Insp Guy Leach, of Lincolnshire Police said: "There is no indication that [Mr Ellis] doesn't have his medication with him.

"All the indications are that he... is stable and does not pose a threat."

Appealing for her daughter to get in touch, Linda Squires said: "I just want my baby back, please call us Clare. You won't be in any trouble - we just want to know you're safe."

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police said: "We are appealing for Clare or Michael to get in touch with us as soon as possible. It is vital that we establish that she is safe and well.

"They have been in the Skegness area together recently, but they could be anywhere in the country now."
