She was reported missing on July 24 and has not been seen since.

"I would ask members of the public who may have seen her recently to contact us on 101 quoting incident number 2007 of July 24.

"Likewise, if Gina sees this appeal, please call on 101 to let us know that you are safe and well."

When last seen, she was wearing a dark jacket, green stripped t-shirt, dark trousers and white trainers.
