The mother of a teenage girl who has been missing since Saturday night has pleaded for help to find her daughter, fearing she may have gone somewhere with a man she met on the internet.
Michelle Darcey said her 15-year-old daughter Brooke Skybinsky had left her mobile phone at home, had not contacted any family or friends, had not touched her social media accounts and had no money.
She last saw her daughter when she went to bed at their Armadale home on Saturday night after a fun night with family friends.
"She was gone by the morning," she said. Ms Darcey said her daughter had never run away before and she had no indication anything was wrong.
She had since been told by some of her daughter's friends that they thought her daughter might have been picked up that night by a man called Rodney who she met on Facebook.
She said she hoped that was not true.
"I'm trying hard not to listen to those stories, police are investigating everything," she said. "We've never heard of a Rodney - Brooke is not a silly girl, she knows not to do that."
She said her daughter had a 17-year-old boyfriend but police told her the 15-year-old was not at his house.
Ms Darcey said she was unsure what clothes her daughter was wearing but knew she had her iPod with her.
"Anything would help at this point; we've exhausted all our avenues for trying to find her," Ms Darcey said. "I'm at a loss and her best friend is worried about her as well."
She does not believe her daughter ran away because the family's elderly dog has to be put down and her daughter had wanted to be with him at the vet.
She urged anyone with information to call her or police and pleaded with her daughter to call if she was safe."I'm very worried, I miss her and I just want her to come home," she said.
