And her sister Gracie is wearing a navy blue hoody with the initials ‘MB’ on the chest, blue jeans and white Puma trainers.

One of the girls is also carrying a cream-coloured backpack, while the other may have a navy backpack with white spots.

Leicestershire Police urged anyone who has seen the sisters, or knows of their whereabouts, to call 101, quoting incident 619 of 10 May. 

Meanwhile, members of the community have responded in shock to the announcement that the two girls are missing.

Responding to the police’s appeal, one Facebook user, Nadine Tidmarsh, wrote: ‘What a nightmare for their parents! Hope they are found safe and well, soon.’

Another, Izzie Baillis, wrote: ‘I hope they are found, quickly, safe and well… The parents must be going out of their minds. Truly any parent’s worst nightmare.’ 

Hayley Barber added: ‘I cannot begin to imagine how their poor parents must feel, please please let them be found safe and well.’

A number of locals are believed to have joined the search and rescue operation last night.

It is understood the search is concentrated around the girl’s home town of Mountsorrel.

A police helicopter is also believed to have been involved in the search and was heard hovering above the town around 1am this morning. 

One of those who joined the search, Steve Eljay, wrote on Facebook: ‘It’s daylight and unfortunately no joy.

‘After 6 hours i need to call it a day for a few hours. Hopefully some good news will happen.’
