Bobby Kelly, the 16-year-old, who disappeared to join the Jesus Christians religious cult, a month ago, was found safe and well today, police said.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police kidnap and specialist investigations unit found Bobby in a tent with two men in a forest near Mytchett in Hampshire this morning, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

"He is safe and well and will be taken by police to the High Court later today. Two men who were with Bobby have been arrested on a High Court warrant and will also be taken to appear before a High Court judge later today. The three were found living in a tent in a forest," the spokesman said.

On Tuesday, High Court judge Mr Justice Munby urged Bobby to come forward and appealed to the public for any information on his whereabouts following court action taken by his grandmother, Ruth Kelly, who had been caring for him at her home in Romford, Essex.
