Police are searching for two teenage girls who have been missing from their North Lincolnshire homes for three days.

Friends Corrina Stirland, 15, and 14-year-old Rebecca Armer were reported missing from Scunthorpe on Wednesday.

Humberside Police said they were concerned for their welfare.

They were last seen when a friend spotted them at around 2135 BST on Thursday in the Cole Street area of the town.

Police said they had also been an unconfirmed sighting of the girls on Gainsborough Road, Kirton Lindsey, at about 0600 BST on Saturday.

Corrina, of Hunt Road, is described as white, 5ft 4in (1.62m) tall, with a slim build, dark brown straight hair and blue eyes.

She was last seen wearing a black top, leggings, a belt and black Ugg-style boots.

Rebecca, of Buckingham Avenue, is described as white, 5ft 2in (1.57m) tall, with a slim build, long, very straight hair and blue eyes.

It is not known what she was wearing.

A Humberside Police spokeswoman said: "The girls are friends and police are concerned due to their ages."
