Police say they have found a missing 11-year-old girl who had not been seen in four days.

Shayla Lay, had not been seen since Monday, police said.

Police spokeswoman Kris McGehan said Shayla was found "safe and well" in Hastings late this morning.

"Police received information from a member of the public who saw her walking along a suburban street.  She is now in the care of Child Youth and Family."

Earlier, McGehan said Shayla had run away in the past, and while police believed she was okay, they had concerns because of her age.
