Cuckney A60 child ‘identified and safe and well’, say police

POLICE said late on Friday that they are satisfied that a child seen walking alone along a busy road yesterday has been identified and is safe and well.

The child was spotted walking along the A60, close to Cuckney, and other reports received from members of the public stated she was seen close to the turn-off for Creswell between around 8.30 and 8.40am on Thursday.

Numerous searches of the area and house-to-house enquiries were conducted to try to locate the girl, although no reports of a missing child in the area had been made.

A CCTV image of the girl from a passing bus was released on Friday afternoon in the hope her parent or carer would come forward to identify her to police.

Officers are now satisfied that they have identified the girl and she is safe and well.
