Family holiday of an Indian family in UK turned into a nightmare after their 17-year-old daughter Emaan Shah went missing in London.

Emaan was due to leave the country with her family on the evening of June 10 but in the afternoon she went missing while she along with her family was shopping at the Oxford Street, one of London's busiest shopping districts. She has not been seen since then.

Police have launched an appealed for information about the teenager. "The disappearance is out of character and officers are keen to trace her as soon as possible," the Metropolitan police said in its appeal.

"Emaan is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall, of slim build with brown wavy hair. When last seen she was wearing a black jacket with a Manchester United logo on the chest, grey trousers and black and white trainers," the appeal adds.

The Shah family was staying at the five-star Marriott Hotel in Marble Arch, near Oxford Street, and they rushed to look for her there but there was no sign of Emaan at the hotel either. She was carrying some cash with her but did not have a mobile phone on her.

Her father, Tanvir Shah, who runs an advertising company in India, said, "We are frantic with worry. There is no reason why she should go missing. She was happy and had just done well in her exams and was looking forward to choosing a university."

The Met police is now trawling through CCTV recordings of the area and have urged anyone with information to call 101.
