The father of a missing Dorset teenager has sent a heartfelt plea to his daughter to return home.

It comes 24 hours after 18-year-old Amy Latham was last seen by a neighbour at her home in Walford Gardens in Wimborne.

Officers from Dorset Police say they are 'gravely concerned for the welfare of Amy' and have launched a full-scale operation to find her since she was reported missing on Monday evening.

Chief Inspector Debbie Marsden, of Dorset Police, said: "I understand that Amy has been very upset recently and her family is concerned that she may come to some harm.

"She took her mobile and last made contact with a friend at 2.30pm but since then we have been unable to contact her. She did not take any money or clothes and she does not have access to a car.

"It is important that Amy, or anyone who knows of Amy's whereabouts, comes forward as soon as possible.

"I urge Amy to get in touch - we simply need to know that you are safe and well."

Now, her father Graham Latham has released a message for Amy asking her to return home.

He said: "I just want you to get in touch with us, we won't be angry, we just want you back."

He described his daughter as 'very kind, outgoing and much loved by her friends.'

Amy lives in Wimborne with her father and her mother Sue Latham lives in Sturminster Marshall.
Amy had just finished her A-levels at Queen Elizabeth School in Wimborne and is planning a gap year to visit her sister Rachel in Australia.

Mr Latham added: "I saw her on Monday morning before I went to work about 7.30pm and said goodbye and blew her a kiss.

"After that she had the house to herself and the neighbour last saw her in a field behind our house around 1.30pm.

"After texting a friend about 2.30pm no one has heard anything from her."

Amy left her wallet at home, which contained her cash and a bankcard.

Amy is white, around six feet tall and of slim build. She has dark shoulder length hair - which she normally wears down.

It is believed that she may be wearing black skinny jeans, or possibly shorts and a dark coloured hoody.   

Anyone with information or knowledge as to Amy's whereabouts should call Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 30:363.
