13-year-old girl missing in UK found with mother in Poland

A schoolgirl who sparked an international hunt after she left the UK for Poland has been found.

Serena Alexander-Benson, 13, is in the country with her mother, Scotland Yard said, and police are investigating whether any crime has been committed.

The teenager left the Wimbledon home where she lives with her father at around 7.50am on May 25, apparently on her way to school.

When she did not arrive there she was reported missing.

Police found that she had travelled out of the UK in a car on a Eurotunnel train with a female friend of her mother.

On Wednesday the National Crime Agency revealed that Polish authorities had confirmed that Serena is with her mother.
