A 12-year-old girl has gone missing from an Invercauld Road home in Goonellabah.
Police say she left the house just before 8 o’clock last night and has not been seen since.
A police spokesperson said a search by her parents had failed to find her in the area and police were calling on anyone who may have seen her to come forward.
The girl is described as being of solid build, about 168cm tall with shoulder-length brown hair. She was last seen wearing a pink parka and black trousers.
