Officers found sisters after spotting missing teenager
A police officer who was searching for missing sisters Liana and Teigan Boyd this morning found them after spotting another missing girl, aged 14, who was believed to have been with the two siblings. The teenager then led officers to a house nearby.
Chief Superintendent Rob Potts said:
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.
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.
GMP: Family 'fraught with worry' over missing sisters
Clearly, the family is fraught with worry that these girls have spent the night away from home. We have launched a police investigation where we are pulling out all the stops to find them safe and well.
We are in the early, critical stages of our inquiries and we would urge anyone with information to call us as soon as possible. Whitworth Park is surrounded by busy roads and last night's weather would have meant that the park was busy.
We need anyone who may have seen the girls call us as this would be vital to our inquiries.
– Rob Potts, Greater Manchester Police Chief Superintendent
