Naomi’s parent Peter and Grace Rees appealed directly to their daughter and Baker, saying they have been “torn to bits” and her disappearance is “killing them”.

Her family are distraught after Naomi went missing on August 15 from her home in Wales.

Naomi’s mum Grace said: “Naomi, we never imagined we would be spending your 16th birthday like this – not knowing where you are or if you are safe or not.

Naomi’s mum Grace said: “Naomi, we never imagined we would be spending your 16th birthday like this – not knowing where you are or if you are safe or not.

“We know that you do care and can only assume that you are not aware of our messages or that you are not being given the opportunity to make contact.

“Not knowing where you are and how you are faring is killing us.

“We won’t rest until the day that you are home and love you more than words can express.

“Please Naomi, get in touch.

“Wherever you are now, you know how much you mean to us so please find a way to get back to us.

“Mum loves you, dad loves you.

“Your sisters are in bits.”

CCTV footage shows Naomi taking a bus into Pontypridd, South Wales, before walking into the town’s War Memorial Park.

Naomi, who is 5ft 6in, lives with her family in Rhydyfelin, Pontypridd.

She was wearing a long scarf, dark jacket, dark jeans and black trainers and was carrying a holdall on the day she went missing.

Police believe that she is with Tomas from Tamworth, Staffordshire, who she is believed to have met online and say the family are “torn to bits” by their disappearance.

Mr Baker’s family also appealed for him to make contact.

In a statement released by police, his mother said: “Your sister ‘boo’ and me are worried sick.

“Please do the right thing and if you are with anybody you should not be with, then please take them to the nearest police station or being the good man you are Tom – make them do the right thing in contacting who they need to contact.

“Tom we all love you and miss you deeply. Please, Please THINK and do the right thing.”

Detective Inspector Arabella Rees, said: “No contact has been made so of course we are worried for her safety.

“We are working with policing colleagues across the UK and we are following up information we have had from a very supportive public.

“Our investigation is focused on South Wales and also areas which run along the Wales border into the Midlands.

“Other police forces are assisting us and we are asking members of the public to help us.

“Naomi is a child – she needs to be with her parents.

“My appeal to her is to let us know you are safe.”

Officers have circulated the descriptions of Naomi and Baker to other police forces while Naomi’s photo has also been circulated nationally by the Missing People charity.
