Police have thanked the public for their assistance in helping to locate a 13-year-old girl who went missing from Ballina High School a week ago.

Brianna Briggs was located safe and well this morning.

The original report is below:

Brianna Briggs had not been seen since leaving the Burnet Street school early last Wednesday (October 23).

She is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 170–180cm tall, with a thin build and brown eyes.

Brianna has blonde hair but may have dyed it burgundy since her disappearance.

Although police have been told Brianna has made contact with friends in the past week, investigators need to confirm her whereabouts.
