THE family of a missing teenager have vowed to find their "darling girl" as police continue to quiz a 19-year-old on suspicion of her murder.

A desperate search for Gaia Pope, 19, was launched after she vanished without a trace last Tuesday.
Nathan Elsey, 19, was last night arrested alongside his grandmother Rosemary Dinch, 71, who has since been released under investigation.
Today Gaia's family released a statement through police, which read: "To Gaia. We all love you forever. We miss you beyond words.
"We will find you darling girl. The thought of seeing the sunshine of your smile again soon keeps us all going and hoping."
Neighbours say Gaia had recently been staying with her auntie Talia Pope in Swanage, just a few streets away from Mrs Dinch and her grandson Elsey who appeared as an extra in war epic Dunkirk.
In a TV interview before her arrest, the 71-year-old told the BBC how a distressed Gaia banged on her front door asking for help on the day she disappeared.
She said: "She looked upset. Very upset. I am just so pleased because I gave her a cuddle and then she responded.
"Of course I want to find her and I have no idea where she is. She just seems to have disappeared.
