An 11-year-old girl, missing for four days, was found safe and well in Hastings late this morning. 

Police said this morning they were fearful for the safety of Shayla Lay, who had a history of running away from home.

Shayla is now in the care of Child, Youth and Family after a member of the public reported seeing her walking along a suburban street, said a police spokesman.

Her caregivers reported her missing on Monday when she disappeared from her Hastings home.

Constable Adrianna Ingpen said the girl had previously run away from home and had been worried for her safety. 

Hawke’s Bay police removed a post about Shayla’s disappearance from their Facebook page this morning because people were divulging personal information about the girl.
