Relief as schoolgirl, 12, who went missing for a week with no money or mobile is found

A 12-year-old girl who disappeared more than a week ago has been found and is "safe and well", say police.

Fears were raised as Jamie-Lee Harvie had no access to money or her mobile phone when she vanished.

The schoolgirl was reported missing from Ayr, Scotland on Tuesday March 14 as her frantic parents raised the alarm.

Earlier today a member of her family shared the good news she had been found, which was later confirmed by the police.

Her uncle Steven Harvie wrote on Facebook: "My wee niece Jamie-Lee has now been found.

"Since the disappearance on Tuesday the 14th March after 8 days she has just recently been found.

"Thanks to everyone in their contribution to finding her. From getting it posted over social media platforms to some people going out their way to find her, thank you."

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Jamie-Lee Harvie, 12, who had been missing from Ayr since Tues, 14 March has been traced safe and well by officers in the Irvine area this afternoon.

"Thank you to everyone who assisted in the search for Jamie-Lee, and thank you to members of the public for sharing our appeal."
