UPDATE: Police have found a missing mother and her teenager daughter after a search.

Hertfordshire Constabulary issued an appeal to find Naveeda Haider, 54, and her daughter Ayma Ali Khan, 12.

Both family members were last seen in Central Watford at 5pm on Thursday (September 17).

Naveeda is described as Asian, of large build, and about 5 ft 8 with black hair.

Police say she is vulnerable, and officers are growing increasingly concerned for her and her daughter’s welfare.

If you believe you are with them or seen them within the last few moments, contact 999 immediately quoting reference 172 of September 18.

If you have seen them since they were reported missing or have information about where they may have been, call the non-emergency line on 101.
