Urgent appeal issued for missing four-year-old girl last seen leaving play centre

An urgent police appeal has been launched after a four-year-old girl vanished in Derry, Northern Ireland.

Scarlet Duddy was last seen shortly before midday today leaving a children’s play centre on the Springtown Road area of the city.

Scarlet is described as having hazel eyes and light brown hair which was tied up with a pink hair bow and her front two teeth are missing, Belfast Live reports.

Inspector Swanson said: “We are keen to know that Scarlet is safe and well. We believe she may be in the company of a relative and may possibly be in the Republic of Ireland.

“I would appeal to that person to get in touch with police as soon as possible on 101, quoting the reference number 932 of 28/06/21.

“She was wearing peach leggings, a peach skirt, peach t-shirt with daddy’s little superstar printed on the front and a dark blue jumper with silver sequined heart.

“If any members of the public have any information about Scarlet, I would urge them to contact police immediately.”
