Police have issued an urgent appeal for information after a 13-year-old girl went missing from York.

Elise Donoghue was reported missing at 8.39pm yesterday evening after leaving her drama class at the York Theatre Royal on St Leonard’s Place just before 8pm.

It is not believed Elise has any money or access to a mobile phone, and officers say she is considered vulnerable due to her age.

Enquiries have been ongoing to locate in York where it is known she has connections in the Fulford and Danesgate areas of the city. There is also a possibility she headed to York Railway Station and boarded a train heading towards the north-west, where she has friends in the Cheshire area. British Transport Police is assisting with these enquiries.
