POLICE have found a missing 12-year-old Hartlepool girl safe and well.

Sophie Dunn was last seen at her home in Joicey Court, Hartlepool, at around 8.30pm on Wednesday, September 11, when she left to go to her grandparents address in Hart Lane.

But she did not arrive and was reported missing early Thursday morning.

It led officers to issue an urgent appeal for anyone with information to come forward and thankfully the youngster later turned up safe yesterday afternoon.

A Cleveland Police Spokeswoman said: “Police located Sophie Dunn safe and well in the Hartlepool area.

“Officers would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance.”
