THE STORY FROM EARLIER THIS MORNING:
POLICE are searching for two young Redditch girls who vanished overnight from their home in Greenlands.
Cousins Leah Giles, aged 12 and Brianna Savage, eight, were last seen at around 1am this morning (January 2).
At this point in the investigation it is not believe that anyone was involved with their disappearance.
Leah is 5ft 3, mixed race and has long, dark, curly hair which is usually tied back.
She is currently wearing a special boot as she broke her toe and may be limping.

“Please call 101 if you see either girl or have any information as to their whereabouts.”
