The heartbroken mother of a six-year-old girl found dead on an island in Scotland read the news via Facebook.

Alesha MacPhail disappeared shortly after 6am on Monday from a flat near Rothesay, on the Isle of Bute.

The child had been staying with her paternal grandparents, Angela King and Calum MacPhail, when she was reported missing from their top floor flat, shares Daily Mail.

Angela King appealed for help from the tight-knit community as neighbours and friends began looking for the girl.

However, a body was found about half a mile away from the grandparents’ home at around 9am on the site of a disused hotel.

An hour later, Alesha MacPhail’s mother Georgina Lochrane, 23, commented on Mrs King’s post – asking what had happened to her daughter.

She said: ‘Someone tell me what’s happened that’s my daughter.’

Georgina, known as Genie posted again: ‘Angela answer me now.’

Followed by: ‘That is my f****** daughter.’

Shocked posters on Facebook were outraged the mother did not have any answers.

Members of Angela’s family claimed the grandparents had tried to make contact with Alesha’s mother.

  • I can’t believe the grandparents weren’t able to contact the mother of the girl. That’s so sad. So tragic for the mother to learn it like that. :-(


  • What a tragedy. I hope the police work out what happened quickly so as to put that poor mother’s mind to rest.


  • This is such a horrendous tragedy – I hope the full story comes out as this is very strange indeed!


  • The poor mother. I hope nothing sinister happened the the little girl


  • An absolute nightmare for that poor Mother.


  • Possibly they were overcome with grief themselves but I don’t think I would see that as an excuse if that was my child


  • No way!
    How absolutely heart breaking!
    To not only lose your child, but to also find out on social media, how appalling! My heart breaks for the mother & their whole family
