Update: Ella Parnell has been found safe and well


Police are making a new appeal for a 16 year old girl who’s been missing from her home in Leeds.

Ella Parnell, who is 16 and is about 5ft 8ins tall, was last seen at her home in Beeston at about 10pm on Friday 22 January 2021.

She is described as a white female, with freckles and very long straight blonde/auburn hair.

She was last seen wearing navy blue jeans, a knee length black padded coat with a brown fur hood, and black Nike Trainers with orange and white detailing on the side.  

It’s believed she could have travelled out of West Yorkshire and could be in Coventry or Greater Manchester areas.

Detective Inspector Vicky Alexander of Leeds District Safeguarding Unit said:

“Ella is someone who has gone missing before but that does not lessen the concerns we have for her welfare and the urgent need to find her and get suitable measures in place to stop this from happening in the future.  

 “We want to hear from anyone urgently who has seen her or knows where she is.

“Enquiries are continuing to locate her.”

Anyone who can assist us is asked to contact police on 101 or by using the contact options on the West Yorkshire Police website www.westyorkshire.police.uk/contactus quoting log 137 of 23 January.
