Girl, 12, last seen in nightspot in Hartlepool

A 12-year-old girl has gone missing in Hartlepool, police said.

Yasmine Jaafri was last seen at 0120 BST on Sunday in the Church Street area, a popular pub and nightclub spot.

Police believe she followed her cousin into town on Saturday night. Yasmine is described as white, 5ft 6in tall, slim, with dark hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing black leggings and a black top with a pink and white waistcoat and gladiator sandals.

A police spokesperson said "Yasmine lives with her mother and stepfather in the town.

"She is described as someone who would keep regular contact with her family and the fact that she has not been in touch is totally out of character."
