The search in woodland and along rivers used three dogs
A 10-year-old girl missing overnight in "awful" weather conditions in west Wales has been found safe and well.

Rescue teams helped police search for the youngster, from the Haverfordwest area, who disappeared from the town's Tesco car park on Friday evening.

She was found by a police officer, 15 hours after being reported missing, after being spotted by a passer-by.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they were talking to the girl to try and find out what had happened to her.

A police spokesman said: "She was found at 12.30pm in the town centre safe and well after a member of the public called in.

"She was spotted by someone who had heard media reports describing her.

"At this time we do not know where she has been but we are talking to her with a view to finding that out."

Search dogs

Western Beacons mountain rescue team were called at about 2300 GMT to assist police in the hunt for the girl.

The search in poor weather conditions continued through the night, with help from members of the Brecon rescue team.

Central Beacons mountain rescue took over the search on Saturday morning, following up leads police had developed overnight.

Two dogs were used in the search overnight and a third was brought in on Saturday morning before the girl was located.
