Missing sisters found safe: Two Manchester schoolgirls recovered after disappearing on way to Whitworth Park

By Dean Wilkins

Two schoolgirls who went missing yesterday were found safely by Manchester police today.

Teigan and Liana Boyd, aged eight and 11, disappeared after leaving to play in Whitworth Park at around 8pm

At about 11.20am, police officers looking for the girls came across a 14-year-old girl, who was also missing and believed to have been with the sisters.

The officer saw the girl who was walking on Richmond Grove. The girl then led officers to a house nearby.

Chief Superintendent Rob Potts said: “Until we have fully spoken to everyone involved we will have nothing further to release on this matter. The most important thing is that the girls have been found safe and well.

“We understood that the sisters were with another missing girl, and officers were given descriptions of all three.

“I would like to praise the actions of the police officer involved, who acted quickly and noticed the girl matching the description.

“I would also like to thank the media for their assistance in publicising this appeal.

“Liana and Teigan are safe and well, along with the 14-year-old girl who was also missing. We are speaking to all three to fully establish what happened and will be continuing to work with partner agencies.”
