THE mother of 15-year-old Chantal Fletcher, missing for more than a month, has spoken to the POST of her distress at her daughter's disappearance.
Chantal was last seen at her home in Adomar Road, Dagenham, in the early hours of March 3.
That morning, she packed a bag, left the house, and has not been seen or heard from since.
Chantal's parents are not sure of the exact time she left.
Her father saw her bedroom light go out at about 3am but she was not in her bed when her mother went in to check on her at 5.30am.
At 6am, June Fletcher called the police and reported her daughter missing.
She told the POST: "She's gone before, but she always calls to let us know she's ok. "She wants her independence but I've told her it's not going to happen, she's only 15."
"She's never failed to keep in touch before." she added. "She's never just disappeared."
Following interviews with her school friends, police believe that Chantal could be in the Walthamstow area and there have been two sightings of her there in the last two weeks.
Mrs Fletcher said: "I keep asking myself 'Why has she run away?'.
"There's nothing out there for her.
"We love her and we just want her to come home.
Chantal is black, slim build with brown eyes and straight black hair usually worn tied up.
