    She's named here as Alesha MacPhail. I've asked for the thread title to be amended.

    :Cops were called to reports of six-year-old Alesha MacPhail going missing at around 6.30am this morning in Rothesay.

    It is understood she was staying with her dad Rab MacPhail and grandparents Calum MacPhail and Angela King on the island.

    Gran Angela had originally used social media to help spread the word to find the youngster.

    It's fine. I wasn't sure which forum to post it in, so went for 'located persons'.

    Unfortunately I think 'crimes against children' is going to be more appropriate.

    Unless Alesha was on the autistic spectrum (or similar) I'm struggling to see this as accidental.

    "The schoolgirl from Rothesay on the Isle of Bute was reported missing at 6.25am on Monday. Just over two hours later officers found the body of a young girl in the Port Bannatyne area.

    It is believed she was found to be missing from her bedroom, prompting appeals on social media for people to search their gardens and outbuildings.

    A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "At around 6.25am this morning, police were informed a six-year-old girl was missing in Rothesay. A search was undertaken to try and locate the child.

    "At around 9am the body of a young female child was discovered in the grounds of an old hotel, Kames Hydro Hotel."

    Her grandmother Angela King had put out a Facebook appeal for her safe return, saying: 'Alesha has gone missing from our house, please help look for her.'

    The girl is thought to have been staying with her father Rab MacPhail and grandparents Calum MacPhail and Ms King on the island, reported The Sun.

    After being reported missing at 6.25am today, Alesha's body was found at about 9am on the site of the former Kyles of Bute Hydropathic Hotel, which was demolished in the 1970s.

    From Google Maps, if this is the correct section, looks like a pathway straight up to the wooded area

    eta, just seen your post Tortoise, with the numbers in Ardbeg Road, so this does seem to be the correct section.
