Man charged with murder of 9yo girl in NSW


A man has been charged with the murder of a nine-year-old girl who disappeared from the NSW Blue Mountains last week.

Police arrested the 32-year-old at a Surry Hills unit on Tuesday night. He has been refused bail to appear in Central Local Court on Wednesday.

More than 100 people have been searching dense bushland for any sign of the girl, who was reported missing on Friday morning.

The nine-year-old disappeared from the Wildenstein Private Gardens where she had been holidaying with family in Mount Wilson.
