CHRISTMAS was cancelled for the family of missing schoolgirl Shelley Pratt with yesterday marking the seventh week since the teenager disappeared.

Lisa Pratt has not seen her daughter since she disappeared on November 8 after school.

CCTV images of the 14-year-old on the night of her disappearance have been circulated but there have still been no reported sightings.

Mrs Pratt said: "We aren't doing anything for Christmas, we won't be celebrating anything until Shelley comes home.

"It's been seven weeks and I don't know how to go on any more. It's getting harder and harder. We haven't seen or heard from her since then and that is just not our Shelley, she wouldn't do that."

The family of eight, Shelley being the youngest girl, will not turn on the many lights decorating their home in Crowther Road, South Norwood, as they feel they can't be festive without their child.

Mrs Pratt said: "Her dad just broke down the other day. He just sobbed for an hour and a half. It's just become too much for us. Shelley loves Christmas, she wouldn't want to miss it, I know someone's got her and won't let her go."

The Westwood College student was last seen on CCTV images in the early hours of November 9 with an unknown young man in Croydon High Street.

Approximately five minutes later, her Oyster card was used to board a route 60 bus towards Coulsdon. Since then there has been no sign of her.

Mrs Pratt said: "I pray we get her back before the new year."

Shelley was last seen wearing her school uniform trousers and a distinctive purple hooded jumper with the slogan "I love (heart symbol) London". The teenager is white, about 5ft 6ins to 7ins tall, with long brown hair.

Anyone with information about Shelley's whereabouts is urged to call the incident room on 020 8721 4906.
