Detectives are desperately searching for a teenage girl who has been missing for a month in a case they have described as ‘critical’.
Pamela Horvathova was last seen leaving the college she attends in Sheffield at around 2.05pm on December 18.

Police had released the footage as they had wanted to question two men who were seen leaving the building with the teenager.
Speaking to the MailOnline a spokesperson from South Yorkshire Police said the two individuals have been questioned and released and are not believed to be involved in Pamela’s disappearance.
She was wearing a dark hooded jacket, blue jeans and was wearing her hair on top of her head in a bun.
The teenager who is from the Slovakian Roma community does not have a mobile phone or any presence on social media.

After leaving the college, detectives believe she walked to the city centre, and there was another sighting of Pamela at the iceSheffield arena the following day.
A team of eight detectives and twelve police officers are working around the clock to try and find Pamela, in a case described as ‘critical’.
Supt Paul McCurry said: ‘Due to the length of time she has now been missing, and the lack of contact with her family, or anyone we have spoken to so far during the course of our enquiries, our concerns for Pamela are understandably growing.’
Officers held a public meeting in Darnall, the area of Sheffield Pamela is from, on Tuesday but said it failed to result in a new fresh leads.
Supt McCurry added: ‘The community have really come together to work with the police and support our investigation, for which we are thankful.
‘We need the public to get behind us and we need your help to find her. We are particularly keen to speak to her friends and anyone she associates with outside of college.’
He told reporters Pamela’s family are ‘very upset’ but community members have told police Pamela may not want to go home.
Officers are widening their search beyond Sheffield to the rest of the country and Europe, although police have no evidence she has gone abroad.
Asked how worried he was for her safety, Mr McCurry, said: ‘I think it’s fair to say we are very worried. This is a critical incident, we have a lot off staff involved in this.
‘We need information from the public – sightings, any lines of inquiry we will follow.’
The police investigation involved officers visiting Sheffield College to speak to students and hand out posters.
Police urge anyone who sees Pamela to call 999 immediately.
