A British teenager who went missing from her Mallorcan school was found safe and healthy, her relieved mother has confirmed.
Taya O’Louglin, 14, sparked a major police search after she disappeared Tuesday morning.
Mother Danielle Kennedy confirmed today that she had been reunited with her daughter Thursday night.
Police started a huge manhunt in the Balearic Island this week when Taya’s family was desperate to find her.
Danielle said, “Taya was found safe and sound last night after presenting in a safe place.
“Her family is asking for privacy at this point, but would like to thank family, friends and strangers who have helped make her return safe.
“We have no more comment to make than to say that she is fine.”
Expat Danielle added, “We want to reiterate that Mallorca is a safe and beautiful island for residents and visitors alike.”
The last sighting of Taya is said to have taken place on Tuesday at around 8 a.m. in front of the Ramon Llull secondary school on the Spanish island of Mallorca’s capital Palma.
Her mother reported her missing to the police at 3 p.m. that day.
The UK Foreign Office said it was “extremely” concerned about the schoolgirl’s disappearance.
She was last seen wearing a white backpack with flowers, and local reports say she disappeared at the same time as a Spanish friend.
Before her daughter was found, Danielle related The sun : “I have no idea where she is and it’s just not like her – she’s gone.
“Taya has never done anything like this before.”
