Urgent appeal to find missing Redruth teenager

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 3:33pm 12th February 2020. (Updated at 7:21am 13th February 2020)

A missing teenager from Cornwall has now been found after an urgent appeal went out.

16-year-old Brooke Maddern had not been seen since around 5pm on Sunday evening, as she left her home in Redruth.

Brooke's mum, Justine Trevaskis, told Pirate FM that her daughter suffers from mental health issues.

She described her as 'extremely vulnerable and easily led'.

Her family was very concerned for her welfare and released photos in a bid to help find her.

Now it has been confirmed that Brooke was located by police on Wednesday afternoon.

At the time, Brooke's mum told Pirate FM:

"Brooke was last seen leaving home at around 5pm on Sunday and said she was going to see a friend, but she didn't return home.

"She suffers from mental health issues and has been quite volatile recently.

"We have contacted all of her friends but nobody seems to know where she was going or who with. The police are searching for her.

"She actually contacted me this afternoon via Facebook to say that she was in Plymouth and not coming home. But something didn't seem quite right and we're not sure if that was the truth.

"We don't know where she is or who she is with.

"Please, please let us know if you have seen her anywhere, someone must have seen her somewhere."

Justine Trevaskis, Brooke's mum

Justine has since confirmed that Brooke was found at a house in Troon on Wednesday afternoon and has thanked everyone who shared the appeal.
