Ms Moore said Delika’s mother, Delia White, is “looking everywhere she can” and is deeply distressed.

Ms Moore said she and other family members have repeatedly sent messages and tried calling Delika’s phone, but despite them being delivered, it appears she hasn’t read any.

Her aunt started texting her at midnight after she disappeared.

She added that Delika’s mother is “very protective of her kids,” especially when she’s on vacation, saying, “It’s not like she goes out and does a lot of things on her own.”

Delika’s mother, Delia White, told the newspaper: “She didn’t seem upset or angry when she left — there was nothing that would have made her run away.

“I can’t think of anyone in particular who could kidnap her, but everyone knows us, the whole community knows us, and I come and go from the UK all the time to see my mum.

“My seven-year-old son is here too, and I’m just trying to stay strong for him. Right now I don’t have the energy to even say how I feel.’

Ms White said the family went on a manic search when her daughter did not return home.

She said CCTV cameras in the area were not working, making it more difficult to locate her daughter.

After darkness fell, Mrs. White said, ‘I started to worry because she doesn’t know the area, she doesn’t really speak the language, so I think someone could have seen her or a driver could have picked her up. .

“I don’t know if she went somewhere and got lost.”

She recently posted, “There are a few different looks she could be sporting right now, but we’re not sure if you see her or think you’ve seen her, call the police.” Please.

‘We are now more than 2 weeks further and she is still missing. Has anyone seen her or does she know where she is?

‘If you want to remain anonymous, that is certainly an option. Family, friends and police will follow every lead at this point.

“Can someone, someone, please step up with some kind of information. We’re beyond desperate to find her.’

According to police, Delika was wearing a pink top, black skirt and pink and white Nike Air Force sneakers at the time of her disappearance. She also wore glasses and had recently removed her braids.
