A nine-year-old girl has been found “safe and well” after she was reported missing in a dense forest situated just yards from the North Wales coastline.
At around 20:30 hours last night (22nd Feb), Daisy Williams was found two hours after she had disappeared in Newborough Forest.
After news spread of Daisy’s disappearance, around 400 members of the public came forward to assist North Wales Police with their search.
The HM Coastguard also sent a Search & Rescue helicopter to the area in a bid to try and find Daisy.
A member of Daisy’s family took to social media to thank the emergency services and the 400-or-so volunteers for their help:
‘[Daisy] went missing yesterday evening at Newborough beach.
‘Within an hour of her being reported missing approximately 400 people, mainly Anglesey people turned up to help find her!
‘She was found safe and well within 2hrs, about a mile away.
‘Can you please thank everyone on our behalf and thank the emergency services, police, helicopter and search and rescue teams.
‘The response was just incredible. Thanks so much’.
A spokesperson for North Wales Police said:
“Great news, missing person Daisy Williams has been found safe and well!
“Thank you to everyone who assisted with the search, offered to attend and everyone’s likes and shares on social media.”
