An Ipswich teenager reported missing to police has been found “safe and well”, Suffolk Constabulary has said.
Josie Breenan, 15, has been found after she was last seen in the Spring Road area in the town at around 6am on Friday morning.
The update from police on Friday evening follows an extensive search which involved the use of a police helicopter around the area of Ipswich Waterfront earlier in the afternoon.
There were concerns for her welfare, police said earlier today when they launched a public appeal to help find her.
A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said in a statement at around 4.45pm on Friday: “Police are happy to announce that missing teenage girl Josie Brennan, who was reported missing earlier today, has been found safe and well following an extensive police search.”
Ipswich police inspector Jane Coe added: “We would like to thank members of public for their assistance in locating Josie.”
