A 13-year-old girl who went missing from her home died by her own hand, police have said.

More than 400 police officers took part in the search for Amber Peat, who had not been seen since leaving her home in Bosworth Street, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, at around 5.30pm on Saturday after a row with her parents.

She was found on Tuesday by two police officers searching an area off Westfield Lane, Mansfield.

Amber's mother Kelly and stepfather and Danny said they would always remember Amber for her love of singing and dancing.

In a statement they said: "We will always be grateful for our last family holiday with our beautiful daughter. We will always miss her."
