The father of a teenage mother who has been missing for a year has made a plea for information about his daughter.
Natalie Putt is described as outgoing and fun-loving
Natalie Putt, of Lower Gornal, Dudley, West Midlands, was 17-years-old when she disappeared on 1 September 2003, 11 weeks after giving birth to son Rhys.
David Putt, who is caring for the child with Natalie's stepmother, said his daughter was outgoing and fun-loving.
"She was a normal teenager and it's hard to believe she would just disappear," Mr Putt told BBC WM.
He added: "I just can't believe it's been 12 months with no news whatsoever.
"The police have done everything they possibly can, but have hit a brick wall.
"If she is out there somewhere, somebody has seen her, but the longer it goes on, the less convinced I become that I will ever see her again."
Police have contacted hostels, hospitals and Natalie's friends and relatives during the past year, but nobody has seen or heard from her.
The teenager went missing after saying she was going to some shops near her home.
Natalie is described as white, slim and about 5ft 1in with black shoulder-length hair, blue eyes, a pale complexion and a Midlands accent.
