Cameras recorded her arriving at 11.30am that day and leaving again at 2.05pm.

Pamela was wearing a dark hooded jacket and blue jeans and her hair was in a bun on the top of her head.

Footage of the teenager on the day she vanished was released by South Yorkshire Police yesterday.

Two public meetings have been held over the last two nights in areas with a sizeable Roma community, where officers appealed for information.

Yesterday,  officers handed out missing person posters at Sheffield College and spoke to students about the disappearance.

Anyone who sees Pamela should call 999 immediately.
