Missing Feilding teen Jamie Beardsmore has been found safe and well, police have confirmed this morning.

The 15-year-old went missing from the Manawatu town on Wednesday morning.

Police have released no other information at this stage.

Jamie's family spoke out yesterday saying they feared for her safety and wanted her home.

Father Shaun Beardsmore yesterday said his daughter had a history of running away from home, and might have been trying to get to her mother's place in Christchurch.

"She left to take her brother to school. He got there, but she has been missing since," he said.

Beardsmore's partner, Lenore Beck, said Jamie had managed to travel long distances before when running away.

"She's gone from Christchurch to Timaru before, and from here to Whanganui," Beck said.
