A SEARCH has been launched for a missing 15-year-old girl who did not return home overnight.

Eloise Binge was reported missing when she did not come back to her house in Crawley by midnight.

She was last seen at 5.40pm yesterday and police believe she is still in the town, possibly in Tilbury Park with friends.

Eloise is white, 5ft 3in tall, slim and has long blonde hair.

She was wearing black bottoms and a light-coloured hoody when she left her home.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Anyone who knows of her whereabouts is asked to report online or call 101 quoting serial 1469 of 07/08."

Police said Eloise returned home, safe and well, on Wednesday evening.
