"Crystal was last seen in the Carrickfergus area earlier yesterday afternoon, but may have travelled to Belfast.
"She is described as being 5ft 4, medium to stocky build, with long dark hair. She was last seen wearing blue skinny jeans, a blue and pink body suit, a black denim jacket and white Converse trainers.
“If you have any information that could assist police in finding her, please ring the non emergency 101 and quote incident reference number 1596 - 011022.”
