More pictures of Shannon released


Friends and family of missing schoolgirl Shannon Matthews have gathered together to remember her, a week after she went missing in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

Shannon's friends and family

They walked from the local community centre to Shannon's home in Dewsbury Moor, carrying colourful balloons and wearing t-shirts appealing for help to find her.

Police searching for Shannon

Police are doing everything they can in their search for the nine-year-old, who was last seen leaving her school after a swimming lesson at the local leisure centre.


They've released more pictures of Shannon in the hope it might help someone recognise her if they see her.

Shannon on her birthday

This one was taken on her birthday in September. If anyone has any information about Shannon, they should call the Runaway helpline which is free on 0808 800 7070.
