Waikato Police want the public's help to locate a 15 year old girl who has been missing since November.

Detective Karl Little, of Hamilton City Police, said Trinitee Kahvanna-Mari Maxwell, known as Trini, was last seen on the November 17, 2012, in Hamilton West where she was in the care of Child, Youth and Family.

"Enquiries have ascertained that Trini had been in communication through a social media site, since being reported missing and may have been in Henderson, Auckland,'' Mr Little said.

''She is also known to frequent Hamilton and Tauranga. Whilst we don't believe Trini is in any danger, we want to locate her, due to her age and her vulnerability."
