Police are being investigated over concerns they failed to act thoroughly on reported sightings of the schoolgirl Amber Peat before she was found dead.
It's just under three weeks since the body of 13-year-old Amber was found by officers less than a mile from her home in Mansfield - three days after she went missing.
Amber was found hanged after vanishing from her home following a row with her mother and stepfather. The police watchdog is investigating whether officers missed opportunities to find her. Sally Simpson reports.
A misconduct hearing heard the officer text an acquaintance about the discovery of the missing teen's body before it was made public.
Tributes to missing 13-year-old Mansfield girl Amber Peat have been placed close to where a body was found.
Nottinghamshire Police have held a press conference after the disappearance of 13-year-old Amber Peat.
