Police are appealing for help to find a highly vulnerable young girl missing from Holloway.

Ninna Chaska, 16, has been missing from a care home since 8am today.

The Met said: “Ninna looks younger than her age, is easily distressed and will not be able to take proper care of herself.”

Ninna is 5ft 3ins, of very slim build, with long black hair. She is originally from Peru and speaks very poor English.

She was previously living in Glasgow, Scotland and may be attempting to return there, the Met said.

Anyone with information on Ninna’s whereabouts should call police on 101, quoting CAD 1374/19MAR, or call Missing People on 116000.

*UPDATE: The Met said at 10am on March 20 that Ninna was found safe and well*
