Three brothers who have been missing since Monday have been found safe and well, police have said.
Remus, Janko and David Matloch, aged 15, 12 and 10, sparked a manhunt after they failed to return to their foster parents' home in Sunderland after going on a tea-time bike ride.
CCTV showed the trio catching a Metro train to Newcastle but they were later found in the Lancashire area.
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "All three boys have been found safe and well in the Lancashire area. The media and public are thanked for their assistance."
