Following the disappearance of 12 year-old Tia Sharp on Friday 3 August, the community of New Addington in Croydon have come out in their hundreds to offer their support in finding Tia.
A leaflet awareness campaign co-ordinated by the New Addington Pathfinders community liaison group has printed and distributed tens of thousands of leaflets to homes, shops and tram stops, in the hope of finding someone who knows where Tia is.
New Addington Baptist Church has supported the awareness campaign through printing 6000 leaflets for distribution.
The church is opening at 10am every day this week for prayer and quiet reflection, to which everyone from the community has been invited.
'It is a display of love and compassion of people from New Addington that in this time of tragedy, individuals, businesses and community groups have come together to support this cause,' says minister, Peter Dibdin.
'In addition to our practical support which shows our love for Jesus, we are providing prayer support, believing that Jesus cares about the situation and can bring Tia home safely.'
Anyone who has seen Tia or knows of her whereabouts should call Merton Police on 101 (quoting reference 12MIS025216); or Missing People on 116 000
