Leah is around 5 ft. 6 inches in height with a slim build. She has long brown hair and was wearing black leggings, a grey long sleeved shirt, black Nike trainers, a black Parka jacket with a fur lined hood and carrying a camouflaged bag.
Leah was last seen in Gauze Street, Paisley, just after 9am on Friday while Jasmine left her home in Sandy Road, Renfrew six hours later.
A number of enquiries are being carried out to locate the girls, with officers in Falkirk also checking for any sightings of them.
An appeal was made by Jasmine’s mother, Karine on social media, she said: “My 12 year old daughter Jasmine has been missing from her home in Renfrew since yesterday afternoon. Her friend is also missing and we think it was planned. Searches of all known places she frequents have drawn a blank and police have gone round doors during the night but nothing.
“Please ask your sons or daughters if they know Jasmine and if they have seen her or heard from her since yesterday afternoon. She had arranged for a friend to do her Snapchat streaks and she hasn’t been on Social media herself since 4pm yesterday.
“Any info however small will be appreciated.”
Leah’s mother Pauline also made an appeal on Facebook: “My 14-year-old daughter Leah Dixon has been missing since tea time Friday evening. Her friend is also missing and we think that this is something they have planned in advance.
“The police have searched all of the places she usually hangs about and have had no luck.
“We have heard that she may have travelled to Falkirk/Airdrie and be in a flat in this area.
“Please share this information with your sons and daughters if they know Leah or her friends and if they have seen or been in contact with her in the last day.”
“Any information no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.”
Inspector Steven Espie said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for the girls given their age and that fact that no-one has heard from them. We are checking relevant CCTV footage for any additional information and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen the girl to contact us. We believe they may have got on a bus and travelled to Falkirk and we are undertaking enquiries to ascertain if that is the case.”
Anyone with any information or knowledge as to their whereabouts is asked to call Johnstone Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 3642.
