Earlier this morning police issued a public appeal to ask for information from the public to locate Miss Cockburn who, it was thought, had set off on a walk along the beach.

The Bay holiday homes, where the girl had been staying, said they were assisting police and providing support for Miss Cockburn's family, but shortly before 11.30am this morning, a police spokesperson took to Twitter offer an update and reported that Miss Cockburn had been found safe.

"Missing person Eve Cockburn has been found safe and well thanks for your help," a spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police said.
