Police and rescue services are searching for a 10-year-old girl who has gone missing in west Wales.

The girl, who is from the Haverfordwest area, was reported missing from the Tesco car park in the town at 2040 GMT on Friday evening.

Police said the youngster, who is described as white Afro-Caribbean and who is 167cm (5ft 5in) tall, has the appearance of a 16-year-old girl.

She is of medium build, with brown eyes and shoulder-length black hair.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the girl was wearing a light blue top, white three-quarter length trousers and white trainers when she disappeared.

A spokesperson confirmed that Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team was still involved in the search in "various locations" in Haverfordwest.

Peter Howells, from the Central Beacons team, said: "We've had two mountain rescue service dogs and two mountain rescue teams searching all night.

"We currently have another search dog with us at the moment."

The team was following up leads developed by police during the night, Mr Howells added.

'Awful' conditions

The Western Beacons rescue team said it was called at about 2300 GMT to assist police.

Members of Brecon mountain rescue also helped in the hunt for the missing girl.

A rescue spokesman said the overnight search, involving 35 people, had been carried out in "awful" conditions.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police station at Haverfordwest.
