UPDATE: POLICE can confirm Hollie McKinlay has been traced safe and well.

Forth Valley Police thank everyone who shared their appeals.


THE public are being asked to help trace a 14-year-old girl who has went missing from her home.

Hollie McKinlay was last seen at her home in Benview, Bannockburn on Monday, February 20 at around 8.30am.

She is described as white, 5 ft 2 in height, of slim build, has long fair hair and blue eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing black leggings, a grey hoodie and black and white Adidas trainers.

Sergeant Ashley Kelly, Police Scotland, said: "Our concern is obviously that Hollie did not return home on Monday and has not been in touch with her family.

"She is only 14-years-old so we, as well as her family, want to make sure she is safe and well.

"From our enquiries so far, there is a possibility that she may have travelled to the Edinburgh area.

"We are liasising with bus companies and colleagues in British Transport Police but would ask that anyone who knows where she is or who may have information that will help us trace her to get in touch.

"We'd also appeal to Hollie to call police or her family. We all want to make sure she is safe and well."

Information can be passed to officers via 101, quoting reference number 1111 of Monday, February 20, 2023.
