A search party led by police and the military has been deployed to track down a 10-year-old girl from Svenljunga in western Sweden who went missing on Friday evening.

The girl was at a playground in the town with a group of friends but failed to return home. Police were alerted to her disappearance at 9pm after the girl had been missing for two hours.

Police have launched an abduction investigation but stressed that this was a matter of course and there was as yet no evidence to suggest that a crime had been committed.

According to the police, around 100 people are participating in the search, which is currently focused on all areas within a ten kilometre radius of the playground where the girl was last seen.
