Eight-year-old Sarah Payne is a big fan of the pop act...

Steps have contributed to the appeal to help find missing schoolgirl SARAH PAYNE.

All the members of the group have contributed to a video appeal asking for anyone who has information relating to the eight-year old’s disappearance from a lane in her home town of Kingston, West Sussex, to come forward.

In the appeal, StepsClaire Richards says: “If anyone out there knows anything or has seen anything no matter how small please contact the police”, while Lee Latchford-Evans adds: “Sarah, everyone wants you to come home safe and well.”

Sarah is reportedly a Steps fan, and the band agreed to do the appeal at the request of the Payne family. The video appeal will be shown on news broadcasts throughout the day.

In the most recent developments in the case, police arrested a man on the Wirral late last night, but according to The Guardian, the arrest is not thought to be significant.
