The mother of a teenage girl missing for almost a week has appealed to her to return home.

Elizabeth Toledo, also known as Libbi, walked out of an assisted living facility in Kirkcaldy on Monday.

The 17-year-old, who has autism, ADHD and has attempted suicide in the past, has been in care for several years.

Speaking on Sunday, her mother Judi Toledo said: "I just want her back safe. Obviously she's not in any trouble - I just want to know that she's okay.

"I don't care what's happened, just come home."

Libbi may have been seen with a group of people in Kirkcaldy on Wednesday and there was another potential sighting of the teenager in the town on Friday night.

A woman wearing a green jacket and blue jeans was seen with a man in his late 20s or early 30s with blonde hair styled in a mohawk and a black bomber jacket on Alison Street at around 7.45pm.

Meanwhile, police have searched homes in Kirkcaldy and interviewed Libbi's friends.

Inspector Gordon Anderson said: "I'm keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the female we believe may have been Libbi, and the man together in Alison Street or indeed anywhere else on Friday night or at any time over the weekend.

"We are keen to establish if this was Libbi and identify the man so that we can carry out further enquiries to trace her and ensure she is safe and well."
