Latest police statement about search for missing Tia Sharp:

"We would like to make it clear that officers who worked on a particular missing person case in West Yorkshire are not involved in the investigation to find Tia Sharp.

"Media speculation around other missing children cases is extremely unhelpful and diverts attention away from our desire to trace Tia.

This remains a missing person inquiry and we are keeping an open mind about the circumstances of Tia's disappearance."
