An appeal to find a missing girl from Ipswich last seen by her mum on New Year’s Eve has been called off after she was found safe and well by police.

Molly Carpenter, from the Stoke Park area of the town, failed to return home on December 31.

The 15-year-old was in contact with her mother via social media, but contact stopped yesterday (New Year’s Day).

Police officers had expressed concern for her welfare.

She was found by police, safe, this evening.
