Two young sisters who disappeared after visiting a park near their home have been found safe and well, police said.
Liana Boyd, 11, and her sister Teigan, eight, went missing since around in the evening of 22 July after playing in Whitworth Park in Fallowfield, Manchester.
A short time later their mother went out to the park but was unable to find them and called the police.
A huge search for the girls took place before they were found returning to their home.
The girls were found in a derelict house with another 14-year-old girl who was also reported missing.
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."
