Fifteen-year-old Emma Selby, of Alstonville, who went missing in Byron Bay on March 28.

Police are appealing for information to help find a teenage girl who went missing from the Byron Bay area almost two months ago.

Fifteen-year-old Emma Selby, pictured, of Alstonville, was last seen in the Byron Bay area with a friend about 11.45pm on Friday March 28.

She was reported missing a short time later and officers from Richmond Local Area Command launched an investigation.

Police have followed several lines of inquiry but have not been able to locate Emma.

The missing girl has no access to money and police have serious concerns for her welfare and safety.

It’s believed she may have been making her way to Brisbane at the time, although police have also received reports of possible sightings in western Sydney.

Emma is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, about 158cm tall, with blue/green-coloured eyes, mid-length dark brown hair and of a stocky build.

Anyone with information on Emma’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
