Police put out an appeal to members of the public for help in tracing Kayleigh, who is a pupil at Ashby School in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, saying their concern for her was growing.

"She does not have her phone with her and has no way of contacting us, which adds to our worries about her safety," said Detective Chief Superintendent David Sandall.

"We have been trying to piece together her last movements and, we believe she may have been in the Sence Valley Forest Park area on Saturday afternoon.
