Ella Hysom, the schoolgirl who vanished from hospital while being treated for depression, has been found safe and well following an emotional appeal by her parents.
Police had said they were 'extremely concerned' about the welfare of the 15-year-old who was last seen at around 1.15pm on Monday in Ilford, east London.
She had been undergoing treatment for depression at a hospital in Goodmayes for six weeks before she vanished.
Her parents Tim and Alison Hysom, both 43, from Colchester in Essex, yesterday made an emotional appeal for her return.
Her mother said: "Ella, darling, please get in touch. We love you so much. You are so loved by so many friends and family and we just want you back."
A keen rower and ballroom dancer, Ella, deputy head girl at Gilberd Secondary School in Colchester, was described as a "gregarious" and well-liked teenager.
She had been suffering from depression since the start of the year and had been receiving treatment at the residential hospital for the past six weeks.
