Police say a thirteen-year-old girl reported missing from Tweed Heads earlier this week has been found safe and well.

Tweed Byron police issued a public call for help earlier this week after Kirra Sayers was reported missing on Sunday.

She hadn’t been seen since Saturday night at her home in Tweed Heads at the time of the report.

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Silversides told The Echo Friday morning Kirra was safe and well.

A social media alert for the missing teenager on the Tweed Byron Police Facebook Page is expected to be updated soon.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: To Hall and Back

There is something magical about a country hall. These small wooden buildings dot the landscape. They have a frugal modesty and an old fashioned generosity. If they had names they’d be called Thelma or Rose or Alan. They’re a pungent olfactory mix of last week’s wedding enmeshed with yesterday’s committee meeting.
