A 12-year-old girl, who had been missing since Thursday afternoon, has been found safe and well, police have confirmed on Monday (26).
A search was launched for Mannat Mann, from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, after she went missing on Thursday (22). She was last seen near Wanstead Park in Redbridge, east London.
Other than one possible sighting, around a mile away from where she went missing, there had been no other reports of where she was. She was described her being of Asian appearance with long dark hair and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and grey leggings with a white stripe.
Police had said earlier Mannat does not know the East London area well as she recently moved from Wolverhampton and has so far not contacted family.
Scotland Yard confirmed on Monday morning that Mannat had been found safe and well. During the search, police said she may have been trying to contact relatives in other parts of London.
