UPDATE: Both girls have been found safe and well.

AN appeal has been launched to find two missing schoolgirls from Redditch.

Leah Giles, aged 12-years-old and Brianna Savage, aged 8-years-old, went missing from their home in the Greenlands area overnight.

The girls, who are cousins, were last seen at around 1am this morning (Thursday, January 2).

Police said it is not believed anyone was involved in them leaving home.

A spokesman said both girls have now been found safe and well.

Inspector Lee Page said: “We are really very grateful to everyone who shared our appeal earlier today to help find the girls and are pleased to say they have been found safe and well.”
