The family of a 12-year-old girl who was last seen boarding a train six days ago have revealed they are “worried sick” as the search for her continues.
Jamie-Lee Harvie was last seen around 3.30pm on Tuesday, March 14, at Ayr train station.
She boarded a train towards Glasgow and police believe she may have gotten off the train in Irvine as she is known to frequent the Irvine, Kilwinning and Saltcoats areas.
Her uncle, Steven Harvie, told STV News the family have been out searching for hours and just “want to make sure she’s safe”.
He said: “We’re worried sick.
“We’re been out searching for hours. She’s not been at school at all.
“She has went missing before, but it’s never been for this long.
“The family are all worried, so if anyone sees anything please let a family member know.
“Jamie-Lee, if you do end up seeing this you are not in any bother. It’s more so for your safety and to make sure you are safe.
“We know what’s going on and we’ll fix it, just let one of us know.”
Jamie-Lee is described as 5ft in height and of medium build with long, light, brown hair. When she was last seen she was wearing black clothing including a padded jacket, jumper, leggings and trainers.
