Police have launched an urgent search for a little girl who walked the streets alone in the early hours of the morning.
The girl was spotted on CCTV wearing a pink dress and purple coat around 5am on Wednesday in a town in Co Down, Northern Ireland.
The chilling footage appears to show her wandering down Castlewellan’s main street alone.
She wears a lilac coat with fur trimmings around the hood, a pink dress, pink leggings and short booties.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland said a search was “underway” after the child appeared to have walked past the area’s forest park entrance and into the city.
The force’s interim chief inspector, Adam Corner, said: “Police are investigating a report of a young child being killed this morning (Wednesday, March 30).
“The police were there and no child was found.
“The child, believed to be a girl, was seen walking the footpath on Main Street near the entrance to Forest Park.
“Officials have been reviewing CCTV footage and the child does not appear to be turning into the park but is instead continuing into town.”
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the little girl is urged to contact police immediately on 101 or 999 on 181 03/30/22.
