A deaf teenager missing from her home near Bristol was last seen heading towards Cardiff, police have revealed.

Avon and Somerset Police renewed their appeal for information about 16-year-old Tammy and said they are increasingly concerned for her wellbeing, as she doesn’t have the medication she takes regularly.

Tammy left her home in Congresbury, near Weston-Super-Mare, on the morning of Saturday June 2 and hasn’t been seen since. 

Police appealed directly to Tammy to get in touch and released a CCTV image of the missing teenager as they stepped up efforts to find her.

She is shown waiting at Yatton Station at around 11.30am.

Tammy, 16, has been missing from her home in the village of Congresbury, Somerset since Saturday July 2

The 16-year-old got on the 11.38am train heading to Cardiff via Bristol Temple Meads and Gloucester.

She is pictured in the CCTV wearing a floral-embroidered maroon cardigan, dark blue roll-up jeans, and black Dr Martens boots with pink laces, but is believed to have changed into a black top or jacket.

She is described as white, with brown hair and brown eyes. She’s deaf and she lip-reads.

Detective Inspector Tristan Hawkes said: ‘It’s out of character for Tammy to be away from home and not in touch with her family.

‘We are increasingly concerned for Tammy’s wellbeing as she is not believed to have access to the medication she regular takes, which could impact on her health and require her to need treatment. Tammy, if you see this appeal, please get in touch to let us know you are safe,’ he added.
