One of three schoolgirls who went missing in London has been found safe and well.

Fardowsa Hassan, from Wood Green, was found by police at an address in Haringey at 3am on Friday, Scotland Yard said.

The 13-year-old had been missing for almost two weeks after disappearing on 6 December.

Detectives are still searching for two sisters, Abir and Ahlam Salah, aged 16 and 15 respectively, also from Wood Green. Abir was reported missing on 6 December, and Ahlam on 12 December.

Police believe the pair have not left the country and may be sleeping on buses or elsewhere on the transport network.

A Metropolitan police spokesman said: “The girls have been reported missing before. The last time was on 19 November, when they were missing for a week. They were found safe and well in the Wood Green area.

“Police are concerned for their wellbeing, due to the long period of time they’ve been missing. The girls’ family are concerned for their welfare and urge them to contact them, or the police, to let them know they are safe and well.”

Abir is black, of Somali descent, and 5ft 10in tall and of medium build. Her sister Ahlam is 5ft 5in and of medium build.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Haringey missing persons unit on 101.
