A BROCKHOLES teenager has been found safe and well.

Concerns were raised for Ellie Moccia, 15, who went missing from her home in Brockholes last night.

She was due to meet a friend in Holmfirth but never turned up and her last Snapchat picture attracted further concern as she posed with one finger on her lips, alongside the mysterious caption: “Out.”

But after a growing appeal on Facebook – including a Find Ellie group which attracted more than 2,000 followers – her family has now reported she has been found.

Ellie’s sister Lauren who was leading the Facebook appeal posted: “The power of Facebook has found my sister. I can’t thank people enough for the shares and the messages. I can’t tell you how relieved I am. Thank you.”

A page admin of the group, Holly Comber-Moccia, also posted: “Ellie is home now, thank you everyone for your concern and help.”

No details of where she was found have been made public.
