The family of a Scots schoolgirl who has been missing for six days say they are "worried sick" and doing "everything they possibly can" to try and locate her.
Jamie-Lee Harvie, 12, was last seen at Ayr train station at around 3.30pm on Tuesday, March 14, 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.
Officers say they are "very concerned" about her welfare and they have appealed for information. Jamie-Lee's uncle Steven Harvie shared a plea for help on social media as the search continues.
In a post on Facebook, Steven said: "My wee niece, aged 12 years, has been missing since Tuesday the 14th of March. The family is worried sick and doing everything we possibly can to try to 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."
Steven continued: "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."
Police searches are ongoing throughout Ayrshire and also in Glasgow city centre, as the schoolgirl has previously travelled to the Union Street area.
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."
