Two Missing Girls Found 'Safe And Well' After Extensive Police Search
Two 11-year-old girls who went missing on Friday afternoon have been found.
Police found Hayley and Nida at around 4am on Saturday in Penrith, in Sydney's west. Police say both girls are "safe and well".
The girls' families have been notified that their daughters have been located.
Hayley and Nida were last seen leaving a primary school in Cherrybrook at about 3pm on Friday when they disappeared. At 4.30pm the girls were reported missing.
Police said they may have pre-arranged to travel to the city on public transport.
An extensive police search was conducted on Friday and into the early hours of Saturday morning. Members of the public also volunteered their time to try and find the girls.
"Serious concerns are held for their welfare due to their young age," NSW Police said at the time.
It's still unclear where the girls went after school and why they were in Penrith in the early hours of the morning.
