Detective Chief Inspector Paul Rollinson, from Bolton district, said: “We are understandably extremely concerned about the welfare of this young girl who was reported missing to us last night as it would seem extremely out of character.”
“We’ve been working throughout the night with colleagues from British Transport Police (BTP) and Metropolitan Police and are now releasing a CCTV image of the three when they arrived at Manchester Piccadilly train station.”
“We want to ensure that the girl is safe and well and would ask for anyone with information – no matter how small it may be – to come forward.”
