The mother of missing girl Kennedy Palmer says after conversations with her daughter's friends, she fears she may have met someone online.
Nicola Palmer said: "I asked her friends and they think she'd been talking to a boy on the internet. It really scares me that she might have gone off and met somebody.
She revealed she was beside herself with worry and had been driving around the estates of Ipswich and Woodbridge looking for her until the early hours of this morning.
She also said her disappearance was out-of-character and that there had been no row or argument.
Kennedy is white, around 5ft 3ins tall (1.6m), of slim build and has a distinctive hairstyle, with long hair on one side and shaved on the other side.
Police say her hair is now brown all over, so slightly different from some of the photographs of her. She was wearing a light blue T-shirt, navy jumper and dark trousers when she was last seen.
Meanwhile police say work is being carried out to locate her, but ask that anyone who might have seen her or with any information call them on 101.
