The mum of a missing Ayrshire teen is appealing for the public's help.

Ash Rowe, 13, was last spotted outside Ayr railway station just before 5pm on Wednesday, January 18.

Originally from Darvel, but living in New Farm, mother Mickaela describes Ash as roughly 5ft 1in tall.

At the time Ash was wearing black, knee-high, platform biker boots; a black puffer, bomber style jacket; possibly a green, frog bucket hat.

Ash also knows the Irvine Valley area well, so could be there.

Mickaela's Facebook plea to find Ash has been shared almost 500 times, with locals keen to trace the missing teen.
