Teenager is held after girl, 13, disappears on her way to school

THE SEARCH for 13-year-old Claire Hart has found no trace of her, five days after her disappearance as she walked to school. Teams of specialist police officers have been combing an ever-widening area between her home, in the village of Eaton, Cheshire, and Dane Valley school, two miles away on the outskirts of Congleton.

A man appeared in court yesterday charged with Claire's abduction. Craig Smith, 19, from Congleton but of no fixed abode, appeared at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court. He was remanded in custody for three days.
