Parents' plea to runaway.
Emma Kelly, 15, went missing last Friday after leaving her home in Loughrea, Co Galway on her way to school.
The alarm was sounded by her distraught mother Geraldine when her twin sister Christina arrived home alone.
Gardai have since discovered Emma travelled to England on a one-way-ticket with two other girls in their mid 20s.
The teenager rang home last Sunday from a phone box and told her parents that she was staying with a man in the London area.
But before her mother could get a number she hung up.
"I'm worried sick. I just know she is in danger," said Geraldine last night.
"Emma had no money with her whatsoever.
"She told us that she went to England with two girls from here who are much older then her and this other chap.
"I asked her to give me the number of the phone she was ringing me from but she got cut off. I haven't heard from her since."
"London is such a big city and Emma is so young and childlike.
"She is a tiny little thing and anything could happen to her."
