A 14-year-old girl who was feared to have left her home to go meet a man she had been talking to online has been found safe and well. Emily Wicking from the Greater Eston area of Redcar & Cleveland had not been seen since 4pm yesterday (3 September 2015). Police were concerned about her whereabouts, as her family had said it was highly unusual for her to go missing.
Following an urgent appeal by Cleveland Police, the teenager has now been found safe and well in the Middlesbrough area, and officers have thanked the public for their help. A spokesperson said: "Police are delighted to confirm that missing Emily Wicking has been located safe and well in the Middlesbrough area. We would like to thank everyone involved, the public and the media for sharing this information."
