ACT Policing are appealing for information to help locate missing girl, Ava Keenan.

It’s believed the 13-year-old caught the 5:08 pm train from Canberra to Campbelltown last night (13 September), which would have arrived just before 8:40 pm.

She could be in the Campbelltown or Chester Hill areas of Western Sydney.

Even though Ava is believed to be interstate, police have asked anyone in the ACT who may know of her whereabouts, or anyone in NSW who has seen her, to get in touch.

She’s described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, long dark hair and of medium build.

Anyone with information about where she could be can contact police on 131 444, quoting ACT reference number 7537194.
