A man has appeared in court charged with abduction after an 11-year-old girl went missing.
The child was reported missing from Galashiels in the Scottish Borders on Sunday night, which prompted a search involving specialist divers, a police helicopter, a mountain rescue team and members of the public.
She was located at a property in the area at around 9.30pm the following day, more than 24 hours after last being seen.
The 53-year-old, from the Borders, also faced a charge under the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 under a section covering threatening or abusive behaviour.
He did not enter a plea and was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.
