Thirteen-year-old twins missing for more than a month have been found, police have said.

The Metropolitan Police says Poppy and Lily Myers have been found safe and well after going missing on Friday, May 14 in the Northwood area.

The Met issued an urgent appeal to find the missing girls a few days after their disappearance and renewed the appeal 35 days later.

Posting an update on Twitter this afternoon, the force said: “Poppy and Lily Myers, who were reported missing from the Northwood area, have been found safe and well.

“We are grateful to the public for their ongoing assistance and support.”

This is not the first time the twins have been reported missing. They went missing in early April this year but were later found safe.
