19/03/2017

A man and two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of child abduction after two missing schoolgirls were found in the early hours of this morning (19 March).

The missing 13 year-olds were discovered by officers at an address in the Washwood Heath area at around 1am.

The girls - who had not been seen since leaving a bus in Bordesley Green on Friday night - were safe and well but are now receiving specialist support.

A 27 year-old man and two teenagers, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and are currently in police custody.

Superintendent Tom Chisholm, from Force CID, said: "We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal to assist in tracing these two girls.

"We are now in the process of investigating the full circumstances and would ask anyone with information which could help our enquiry to call us on 101."
