An urgent search has been launched to find a missing teenager, last seen in Kilwinning two days ago.
Charli Vallance was last seen in the Eglington Park area around 12.15pm on Thursday.
Concern for the safety of the 14-year-old is growing with police urging anyone with information to get in contact.
She is known to have friends in areas of Ayrshire and Glasgow.
Officers have also been checking CCTV footage for any information on her movements.
She is described as white, around 5ft in height, with brown, highlighted hair. When last seen, she was wearing a black and grey Nike zipper top and black leggings.

“We just want to know she is safe and well. If anyone has seen Charli or has any information as to her whereabouts, please contact us.
“Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 1637 of April 20, 2023.”
