Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a girl who went missing from Lismore earlier this month.

Nikita McMahon, aged 13, was last seen about 3.30pm on Wednesday 14 July by her grandmother at Zadoc Street, Lismore. Since that time she has not contacted her family or her carer.

Police are concerned for Nikita’s welfare as it is out of character for her to be away from home and not make contact.

Nikita is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, about 170cm tall with an athletic build and brown shoulder-length hair.

Anyone who knows Nikita’s whereabouts is urged to contact Lismore Police on 6626 0599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
