Missing Sydney girl located safe and well. Melbourne girl still missing

11-YEAR-OLD Jacinta Laverance who was reported missing from Sydney’s south has been located safe and well.

The girl was reported missing about 7.30am today (Monday 14 May 2018) near Amaroo Street at Sylvania Heights.

Just before 1pm, Jacinta was located safe and well near A R Hurst Reserve in Sylvania.

It’s not clear why she went missing or where she was before being located but police told the media they will speak with her once she has been cleared by medical staff.

Jacinta’s parents Mark and Belinda Laverance held a press conference telling the media “We are glad she has been found and would like to thank our family and friends and everyone who shared it on social media.”

This news comes as a police search is still under way for a Melbourne girl who was also reported missing this morning.

10-year-old Zahkaya Wooster was last seen in the Hastings area about 7.30pm last night.

Police and her family are concerned for her welfare due to her young age.

Zahkaya is known to frequent public transport areas between Frankston and Hastings.

The missing girl is described as being about 150cm tall with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.
