Ilford girl critically ill in hospital as police appeal for help tracing her movements

Police are trying to piece together the movements of a teenage girl found critically ill two days after going missing from her Ilford home.

Fifteen-year-old Aysha Ali is still in a critical condition in hospital after being found in the street in Spencer Road, Seven Kings at about 8.45am on Friday.

She went missing from her home in Grange Road at about 8.30pm on Wednesday.

Police say Aysha suffers from Type 1 diabetes – a condition that requires regular medication – and it is believed she had not taken this medication while she was missing.

During the time of her disappearance, Aysha was wearing a black T-shirt, black jeans with a silver belt, black calf-length boots and a black leather jacket. She has medium length, dark brown hair, tied in a pony tail and a stud in her nose.
