Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate missing girl Lyla.

The 13-year-old from Lara was last seen on Tennyson Street in Norlane on Friday 18 June about 9pm.

Police and family have increasing concerns for Lyla’s welfare due to her age, medical condition and her disappearance being out of character.

It is believed she was heading to Southern Cross railway station or Melbourne’s CBD, and could have travelled elsewhere.

Layla is about 170cm tall with olive skin and shaved black hair.

She was last seen wearing a grey hoodie and carrying a black backpack.
