Missing girls, aged 6 and 9, who vanished from home are found safe and sound

Police have confirmed they have found the two young girls who had vanished from their home.

Frankie, nine, and six-year-old Lexi were reported missing from Hatfield, Hertfordshire, earlier today.

Their disappearance left their parents frantic and it sparked an urgent search after they raised the alarm.

But the police have now confirmed both children have been located.

They tweeted: “Missing Frankie and Lexi from #Hatfield have now been found.

“Thank you to everyone who shared our appeal.”

Police had earlier asked people to look out for the children, who were both wearing Disney outfits.
