Police are no longer searching for a teenage girl who failed to return to her home after school in Great Horkesley, near Colchester on Friday.

Essex Police officers launched the appeal to find 16-year-old Jade Hood, who was reported missing by her family at 4.15pm that day.

A force spokesman said the teenager, who was considered vulnerable, has since been found safe and well.

Officers thanked members of the public for their assistance with the appeal.
