A 14-year-old Chinese girl reported missing while on a study tour in Queensland is likely to be staying with someone in the Brisbane area, police say.

Can Zhou arrived in Queensland late last month as part of a tour group from China.

She was last seen at 7.30am (AEST) on Saturday leaving an address at Brighton on Brisbane's northern bayside, where she was billeted.

Can speaks very limited English and has no known links to people in Queensland.

Superintendent Colin Campbell said there was no evidence of foul play.

He said Can had packed her belongings before leaving the home in Brighton, and was possibly not alone.

"There's simply no evidence whatsoever to lead us in any other direction apart from the fact that she has been assisted to leave her location at Brighton, and that she may be staying with other people in the Brisbane area," Supt Campbell told reporters in Brisbane today.

Can Zhou is described as 120cm tall with a slim build, black hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a white knee-length skirt and black and white striped shirt with a white short-sleeved jacket, blue and black slip-on sandals and a dark-coloured handbag.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
