Police are trying to find a missing 12-year-old girl who's been taken to Bangkok by her father.

A High Court Judge has ordered the release of details of Arisara Miles, who is known as Zara, who travelled to Thailand with her father without permission.

Zara and her Trevor Miles left their home in Exeter and flew to Bangkok on November 10 last year. Her whereabouts since then are not known.

Having taken his daughter abroad - Mr Miles then failed to attend a meeting arranged by Devon County Council to address concerns about the girl’s welfare.

The Court has now ordered her return to the UK. Devon and Cornwall Police are working with international police agencies in order to try to locate her and to ensure her safe return.

We believe her father Trevor Miles has business interests in Bangkok, and it is possible that they both remain in Thailand. We are concerned for the welfare of Zara and it is important that both she and her father return to the UK.

We are appealing to the public for any information which may lead to locating Zara - her safety and wellbeing is the highest priority at this time
