A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl who vanished while at a play centre in Derry on Sunday has been located safe and well, police say.
Scarlet Duddy, four, was last seen at around midday on 27 June when she vanished from a play centre on the Springtown Road.
It is believed that Scarlet was taken by a female relative, and the search for the missing girl was a cross-border operation, with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) stating that Scarlet may have been taken to the Republic of Ireland.
An urgent appeal for information from the public was issued, with the four-year-old girl being described as having hazel eyes with long, light brown hair and missing her two front teeth.
An image of Scarlet, shown below, was also released by the PSNI via her family to aid with the investigation.
The story has now come to a happy end, as Scarlet was yesterday located safe and well, BBC News reports.
While there were no details provided on where the four-year-old was located, or the circumstances of who had taken her, the PSNI confirmed via Twitter that she was safe and well.
"Scarlet has been found safe and well this afternoon," the force wrote on a statement on Twitter.
The police force thanked the public for their help in the matter.
