A female student of the Camperdown High School in Kingston who had been reported missing, died in hospital yesterday afternoon from natural causes.

The police's Corporate Communication Unit says the girl, Brittany Thorpe, fell ill Friday after leaving school and was taken to hospital. However, persons who assisted her and the medical team treating her were unable to contact her family, who, on Friday, reported her missing. 

She died yesterday afternoon while undergoing care.

The police say Brittany's family was aware of her illness.

They say stories being circulated on social media about her demise are not true.
