Two missing teenage girls from Walthamstow were finally found last night.

At 7pm, local police confirmed that officers found Alliyah and Lina “a short time ago”.

The pair were reported missing on 13th April and police previously asked the public to call 999 immediately if they were spotted.

An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and remains in police custody.

Local police tweeted: “They’re safe and their families have been informed. Thanks to those who shared our appeal.”

A previous version of this article described the appeal to find Alliyah and Lina and included their second names, which have now been removed.
