Police are putting out an urgent appeal for the public's help in tracing an 11-year-old girl who has gone missing in Worcester.
Sharna Woodcock was last seen at 11:15am this morning when she left her home in Canterbury Road, Ronkswood, to visit the local Co-op, but she has not been seen since.
Initial police inquiries suggest she never arrived at the store.
Sharna is described as being mixed race, 5ft to 5ft 2ins tall, with long, shoulder-length frizzy hair, which she was wearing down when she left home.
She was wearing a grey jumper with a face on the front, black tracksuit bottoms, black school shoes and a dark green, waist-length khaki coat with a fur-lined hood.
We need to find Sharna as soon as possible and make sure she is safe. If anyone has seen her walking around Ronkswood or playing in one of the local parks, please contact us as soon as possible.
