Dagenham mum begs daughter to come home

A Dagenham mum has made an emotional plea for her 13-year-old daughter to come home.

Lauren Hewlett has been missing from her home address in Rugby Road since March 29 after telling her mum Vicky Lowing she wasn’t feeling well.

The teenager had just been pulled out of Eastbury School, Barking, where her mum had an appointment to withdraw her from the school.

Ms Lowing, 30, said: I put her to bed and gave her a big kiss and she said ‘I love you mum’.”

Once she left, a neighbour contacted her mother to say the front door was wide-open.
