A desperate search is underway for an American teenager who may have been lured to the UK by an older man.  

Victoria Grabowski, 16, from Queens in the US, boarded a flight from John F Kennedy Airport on Saturday and arrived in the UK on Monday morning, according to New York police.    

US media reports say her parents discovered texts showing she had been communicating with an older man in Britain.

According to her uncle, Arkadiusz Grabowski, ‘the texts show that she got fascinated with London and wanted to move there,’ as reported by qns.com. 

British and American Police are now working to locate the youngster, who paid for her ticket in cash – though her parents did not know how she acquired the money.

‘She left JFK on Saturday morning and reached the UK on Monday morning,’ a New York Police Department spokesman said.

‘We’re working in conjunction with UK police, but unless she contacts us, we’re not going to know too much more.’

US reports said Grabowski is a Polish citizen and used her Polish passport to board the flight – and that her parents have now hired a private investigator. 

Her uncle added that the communication she had been having with the older man was in a group chat, but he could not say how old the others were.
