UPDATE: 21 May, 7:43 am – Good news Canberra. Susannah has been found safe and well.

ACT Policing is calling for the public’s help in locating missing 11-year-old girl Susannah Brown, who was last seen by her family in Deakin last Friday (17 May).

She is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 165cm (5’5”) tall, with a medium build, medium-length brown/blonde hair and blue eyes. Susannah was last seen wearing a blue Canterbury brand T-Shirt and blue denim jeans with rips on each knee.

Police believe she was at Westfield Woden on Sunday morning (19 May).

Susannah has been reported missing in the past, but police are concerned about her safety, health and wellbeing as it appears she is not staying with any known friends or family.

ACT Policing Officer-in-Charge, Woden, Station Sergeant Steven Hogarth said that every missing person case is important.

“From a policing perspective it doesn’t matter if it’s the first time someone has been reported missing or the fifth, if there are concerns for a person’s safety, we take it very seriously,” said Station Sergeant Hogarth.

“Missing persons cases are among the most common non-crime issue police are expected to handle; the investigations can be resource-intensive, but each case is important.

“This is an eleven-year-old girl. If it was your daughter, wouldn’t you like to think the community is there to help?”

Anyone who has seen Susannah or has any information about her whereabouts is urged to contact ACT Policing on 131 444.
