A 14-year-old girl has been missing from Wandsworth, southwest London, for nearly two months after going missing on 22 July.
The Metropolitan Police believe Florica Zamfir may be in the Edgware area in north London.
Despite going missing several weeks ago, a missing person's appeal to find Florica has only just been released, MyLondon reports.
When asked why the appeal has only just been launched, a spokesperson for Wandsworth Police said: "There are procedures to follow and first instance we need to speak to the next of kin of the subject.
"If no success then we need authorisation from Social Services or another authority which may take time."

In another missing persons case, a missing baby girl was found alive in a cave where an alleged kidnapper took her to sacrifice her to forest spirits.
One-year-old Pornsiri Wongsilarung is said to have been abducted by Siew, 44, from outside the family home in a remote village in Chiang Mai province on September 5.

More than 200 police officers, rescue workers, and volunteers searched through nearby homes and woodland. Sniffer dogs, aerial search drones, and a diving team were also looking for Gina in various places where she could have strayed.
Officers arrested the worker from Myanmar, who was a friend of the girl's father, the next day on Monday and he allegedly admitted kidnapping the youngster and leaving her in a cave around two miles from the family home.
The infant, also known as Gina, is believed to have been alone in three days before she was finally rescued from a wooden hut next to the water-logged cave on Wednesday afternoon September 8.
She was wearing only a shirt, was covered in insect bites and appeared exhausted but was standing on her own and laughing with the rescue teams. Medics then rushed to the hospital to be checked over.
The suspect, who lead the police to the location he allegedly left her, said: "The forest spirits were telling me to sacrifice a child to the ghost, so I carried Gina and left her in front of the cave. I did not kill her."
