Parents of a missing 13-year-old girl from Suffolk have pleaded with her to come home after discovering she caught the train to Islington.
Paul Brindley said his teenage daughter Alice Brindley was in Cambridge yesterday with two friends but then rather than catching the train home she got on one to London.
She had known the two friends for years, as had her parents, but Mr Brindley – executive director at Excel London – said each friend was under the impression Alice was travelling home with the other.
“She didn’t get on either train,” he said. “The last thing we heard at 9pm was that she was in the Islington area of London and was using payphones.”
She had been supposed to catch the train back home at around 6pm. Mr Brindley said his daughter had never done this before.
