Amber went missing from her home on Bosworth Street at about 5.30pm on Saturday after a minor row with her mum Kelly and stepdad Danny over chores.

Police and local residents organised searches in a bid to find the 13-year-old, with posters being displayed around the area.

A press conference was held on Tuesday morning in which Kelly and Danny made an emotional plea for Amber to come home.

Formal identification and a post-mortem is due to take place later today (Wednesday).
