A short video on the BBC Dorset website tells the story of Kayleigh who was 12 years old when she first ran away from her foster home. One in 10 young people went missing while in the care of local authorities across England in 2017, and BBC Inside Out South reports that the figure is higher in the South at one in six.

The video can be viewed on the BBC website.
