Breaking News: Police issue urgent appeal for missing Bedminster 8yr old

UPDATE (10.30am) : Police have located eight-year-old Tiolah safe and well in Bristol this morning following an appeal to trace her. A man and a woman have been arrested.

Avon & Somerset Police would like to thank everyone who contacted them or shared their appeal

Missing Tillie

The girl is believed to be with a neighbour and family friend, Annmarie Lawton, and an unknown man, pictured today in East Street, Bedminster.

Tiolah is described as white, with blonde hair. She was wearing black and white polka dot leggings and a black jacket and had a light-coloured rucksack.

Annmarie, 29, is white, with long red hair, about 5ft 6ins tall. She was wearing a black bomber jacket with a fur collar, black leggings and black trainers.

The man is described as in his 20s, about 5ft 6ins tall and stocky with a round face, olive skin and bald head. He was wearing jeans, a dark grey zip-up hoody and a beanie hat and in the pictures has a light brown padded jacket on.

Annmarie, 29, visited Tiolah’s home on Wednesday 16 December with a man known only as Adam. She and Adam took Tiolah out soon after 3pm to visit McDonald’s in Sheen Road, Bedminster. They were expected to return within an hour.

They have not brought Tiolah home or returned to Annmarie’s own home since. Tiolah’s mother reported her missing at about 7pm.

While there may be a reasonable explanation police are treating this investigation as an abduction.

Do you know who this man is?

If you know where Tiolah is now, call 999 straight away, quoting reference 5220282127. If you have any other information about her whereabouts, or the identity of "Adam" ring 101 and give the same reference.

DCI Ed Yaxley said: "We have no evidence that Tiolah has come to any harm but she has now been absent from home without her mother's permission for more than 12 hours.

"Annmarie, if you see this, please contact us straight away. We just want to return Tiolah safely back to her family."
