    Police are urgently trying to track down a little girl who has been knocking on strangers' doors for help today (April 5).

    The child, who is believed to be around six years old, knocked on the front door before saying “I’m lost” and then running away.

    Officers responded to a concerned call and descended upon the Hele area of Torquay, Devon to search for the child.

    The unidentified little girl has been described as white with long blonde hair.

    She was last seen wearing a black coat.

    According to Devon and Cornwall Police, witnesses say the child did not present any sign of “distress” or appear to be upset in any way.

    After running from the property, the little girl headed in the direction of the Farm Foods shop at around 11 am today.

    Several police cars have been seen in the area around the shop, according to Devon Live.

    Police are conducting house-to-house enquiries in an effort to track down the child.

    The National Police Air Service (NPAS) has been involved in the search, police have confirmed.

    The helicopter was seen flying over the Exmouth and Dawlish area earlier today.

    A police spokesperson said: "Our primary objective is to identify and find this little girl so that we can check her safety and welfare.
