Police have launched an international appeal to find a girl who was taken to Bangkok without permission by her father.

Arisara 'Zara' Miles, 12, and her father, Trevor, from Exeter, flew to Thailand on 10 November.

The girl's whereabouts is unknown and a judge has ordered her return to the UK.

Devon and Cornwall Police said it was "concerned for her welfare" and was appealing for any information.

The force said it was working with international police agencies to try to find Zara.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "A judge has today ordered the release of these details, and we are asking for information that could help us locate Zara.

"We believe her father has business interests in Bangkok and it is possible that they both remain in Thailand.

"We are concerned for the welfare of Zara and it is important that both she and her father return to the UK.

"We are appealing to the public for any information which may lead to locating Zara - her safety and wellbeing is the highest priority at this time."
