Police are appealing for public assistance to locate two teenaged girls reported missing from Sydney’s north-west.

Clarissa Venter, aged 13, and Madison Wells, aged 14, were last seen at a school on Castle Street, Castle Hill, about 3pm Tuesday (13 September 2022).

When they could not be contacted, officers from The Hills Police Area Command were notified and commenced inquiries to locate them.

Police hold concerns for Clarissa and Madison’s welfare due to their age; the girls are believed to be together.

Clarissa is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of slim build, about 165cm –170cm tall, with strawberry-blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a black ‘Nike’ jumper and black ‘Nike’ trackpants.

It is believed they may be in the Sylvania area; however, they are also known to frequent the Castle Hill, Baulkham Hills and Rouse Hill shopping precincts.

Anyone who may have seen Clarissa or Madison – or who may know of their whereabouts – is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
