Three children who went missing after a day out at Thorpe Park have been found safe and well after a two-day search.

Surrey Police launched an appeal on Tuesday to find the children, aged 14, nine and seven, who were reported missing just after 7pm on Monday.

They all knew each other and the youngest two, Amelia and Malik, were related. The force said they had been at the park on a planned day out and had travelled to Surrey from Milton Keynes.

All three were last seen walking away from the park towards Chertsey town centre around 3.17pm. It was originally believed they may have travelled to London.

North Surrey Detective Superintendent Trevor Struthers said: “We appreciate the concern that this incident caused, especially given the children’s ages and the fact that they were missing overnight.

“Our officers and staff have worked tirelessly to locate the three of them and we are all relieved that they have been found safe.

“We have received a huge amount of information and information and support from both the public and the media and we would like to thank everyone who provided information and shared our appeal.”
