The Observer publishes a 'most wanted' list each week as an appeal for the public's help in finding wanted suspects.

The brunette did not show up to Stevenage Magistrates' Court on March 6 and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Her picture was posted online by Hertfordshire Constabulary earlier this month it has received a number of comments.

Malcolm Poskett commented online:"Don't say anything."

A Twitter user with the name Manic wrote: "I wouldn't grass her up - I would root for her though."

One Watford resident added: "You don't see many criminals that look like her. I'll help the police to find her if they want."

Another resident said: "Yet another beautiful young life destroyed by drugs. She must have Britain's most beautiful mugshot though."

The teen is said to have links to London and Scotland so police believe she could be in one of these locations.
