Two girls, age 13, missing with two males were last sighted on a bus on Friday.

A man and two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of child abduction after two 13-year-old girls vanished.

West Midlands police said the girls were found by officers at an address in the Washwood Heath area of Birmingham in the early hours of Sunday, after they were last seen on Friday night.

They went missing after getting off the number 97 bus on Garrison Lane in Bordesley Green, Birmingham at around 9pm on March 17, sparking an extensive police search.

Police appeal to find two missing girls.

The pair are said to be safe and well and are getting specialist support, West Midlands Police said.

A 27-year-old man and two teenagers, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and are currently in police custody.

Superintendent Tom Chisholm, from the force's CID, said: "We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal to assist in tracing these two girls.

"We are now in the process of investigating the full circumstances and would ask anyone with information which could help our inquiry to call us on 101."
