A MOTHER has spoken of her eternal thanks to everyone who helped bring her "baby" home.

Emily Ramage said she would like to thank everyone who helped find her daughter, Alissa, who had been missing from Worcester for more than three days.

Residents across Worcestershire and emergency services had banded together to help find the 14-year-old who had gone missing from Newtown Road on Monday night (February 26).

Missing person posters had appeared across city centre businesses' windows, including at Worcester Foregate Street railway station and McDonald's in The Cross, to raise awareness among the public.

"Thank you for Worcester News's help as well, you have been fantastic."

Police had 47 volunteers from West Merica Police Search and Rescue on the ground to find Alissa and their colleagues from Cheshire Search and Rescue had also joined in on the search.

A spokesperson for West Mercia Police Dogs said: "This is great news and special thanks to the 47 volunteers from West Mercia Police Search and Rescue and their colleagues from Cheshire Search and Rescue who carried out searches for this missing child."

People across Worcestershire had shared the missing person appeal far and wide in a bid to find Alissa. 

Acting Detective Inspector Ed Jones said: "This incident was understandably of real concern to the family, friends, and local community.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the public and media for sharing our appeals to help us locate the missing teenager safe and well."
