A 13-year-old girl who was reported missing yesterday has been found “safe and well” by police officers tonight.
Alice Brindley, of Ixworth Thorpe, had last been seen around 6.30pm yesterday at Cambridge railway station, from where she travelled to London.
A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Police enquiries into her whereabouts had been taking place over the past 24 hours, and as a result of these Alice was found in Islington this evening.
“She is now being brought home by Suffolk Constabulary officers.
“Police would like to thank members of the public and the media for their assistance with this appeal.”
Alice goes to Finborough School, near Stowmarket, and had spent the day in Cambridge with two friends, but rather than catching the train home she caught one to King’s Cross.
She had known the two friends for years, as had her parents, but father Paul Brindley said each friend was under the impression Alice was travelling home with the other.
Alice’s parents launched a passionate online appeal to find their daughter after her unexpected disappearance.
