Family of missing schoolgirl, 12, 'worried sick' as search continues

The family of a missing 12-year-old girl are desperate to locate her as search efforts reach day six.

Jamie-Lee Harvie, from Ayr, was last seen at the town’s train station six days ago where she boarded a train towards Glasgow.

It is thought Jamie-Lee may have got off the train at Irvine, and she is known to frequent the Irvine, Kilwinning and Saltcoats areas.

Worried family members are pleading with the public to be on the look out for Jamie-Lee, who is described as 5ft in height and of medium build with long, light, brown hair.

She was wearing black clothing including a padded jacket, jumper, leggings and trainers when she was last seen at around 3.30pm on Tuesday, March 14.

Police officers say they are “very concerned” about her welfare and they have appealed for information.

Photos and posters of the missing girl are being shared on missing people pages on social media and TikTok as the public wade in to try ascertain her location.

Jamie-Lee’s uncle Steven Harvie said the family are “worried sick” in a social media plea.

In a post on Facebook, Steven said: “My wee niece, aged 12 years, has been missing since Tuesday, March 14 - all the family is worried sick and doing everything we possibly can to try figure out where she possibly could be.

“Going by when she went missing, she was wearing; a black puffy jacket, black leggings, black shoes (All Black), height 5’ft, hair colour brown. “Where she’s recently been/ seen is the Moor (Irvine) as the shows have been there- traces from Ayr, Kilwinning, Irvine we’ve gotten so far.

“Any information whatsoever please do contact myself or others as following; Kimberley Findlay, Khloe Miller, Frankie Harvie, thanks."

Appealing directly to Jamie-Lee, he added: “Jamie-lee Harvie if you do end up seeing this you are not in any bother, it’s more so for your safety and to make sure you are safe,

“We know what’s going on and we’ll fix it just let one of us know.”

Cousin Kimberley Findlay, from Irvine, added: “Jamie-Lee is STILL MISSING. Someone has to have seen her? She’s 12!”

Inspector Alex Beagrie of Irvine Police Station said: “Although Jamie-Lee has been reported missing before, she has never been away for this length of time. She is only 12 years of age and she has not been seen since Tuesday.

“We are very concerned. Searches and enquiries are ongoing to trace her as soon as possible to ensure that she is safe and well.

“If you have seen Jamie-Lee since Tuesday morning or if you have any information regarding her whereabouts, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible through 101 quoting incident number 2277 of March 14, 2023.”
