Erika Kacicova: Man Held Over Missing Teenager
Police are searching for a missing 13-year-old girl who disappeared almost a week ago.
Officers are conducting door-to-door inquiries as they try to locate Erika Kacicova, 13.
They are also questioning a 22-year-old man from Bradford who came forward on Friday after hearing about the police appeal.
He is being held in Sheffield on suspicion of child abduction.
Erika was last seen leaving her home in the Darnall area of Sheffield at around 4pm on Monday August 4.
Police have launched a hunt for her there and a team from South Yorkshire Police are also looking for her in Bradford.
An urgent appeal was launched on Friday urging the teenager to get in touch because there were concerns about her safety.
Detective Inspector Helen Tate said on Saturday: "Erika has now been missing for almost five full days and we haven't had any positive sightings or confirmed contact from her.
"We know she has gone missing before but not for this long. She is a young girl, away from home and our main aim is for her to return safe and well.
"We know Erika's family have friends and acquaintances in the Bradford area, so she may well have travelled to West Yorkshire.
"We are grateful for the calls from the public, so please contact us if you think you know where Erika is."
She added: "Erika, if you are reading this, please let us know you are okay. You aren't in trouble; we just need to know you are safe."
Erika, who has gone missing previously, is described as being around 4ft 11ins tall, Eastern European, of slim build, with long, dark-brown, straight hair and brown eyes.
She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a pink polo-style shirt and a silvery-grey coloured jacket.
:: Anyone with information about Erika's whereabouts should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101.
