Police are searching for a schoolgirl missing from home overnight.

Courtney Bailey, aged 15, from Darton, was last seen as noon yesterday when she left Darton College in Ballfield Lane.

Courtney is white, petite and has long, dark brown hair, although a photograph issued by police today shows her with blonde hair.

When she was last seen she was wearing her school uniform - a black blazer, black jeans, a black and purple striped tie and black slip-on shoes.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare and ask anyone who has seen her, or know where she might be, to come forward.

“Courtney does have links in the Wakefield area, so it’s possible she may have travelled to West Yorkshire.”

Call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
