UPDATE: 11.19pm, May 20
POLICE report Susannah has been found safe and well.
POLICE are concerned for the safety, health and wellbeing of 11-year-old Susannah Brown after she went missing on Friday (May 17).
She was last seen by her family on the Friday but is believed she was at Westfield Woden on Sunday morning.
While she’s been reported missing in the past, police are particularly concerned as it appears she is not staying with any known friends or family.
And, Woden station sergeant Steven Hogarth says every missing persons case is important.
“From a policing perspective it doesn’t matter if it’s the first time someone has been reported missing or the fifth, if there are concerns for a person’s safety, we take it very seriously,” he says.
“This is an 11-year-old girl. If it was your daughter, wouldn’t you like to think the community is there to help?”
Susannah is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 165cm (5’5”) tall, with a medium build, medium-length brown/blonde hair and blue eyes.
She was last seen wearing a blue Canterbury brand T-Shirt and blue denim jeans with rips on each knee.
“Missing persons cases are among the most common non-crime issue police are expected to handle; the investigations can be resource-intensive, but each case is important,” Mr Hogarth says.
Anyone who has seen Susannah or has any information about her whereabouts is urged to contact ACT Policing on 131 444.
