Missing teenager, Shelley Pratt, was found yesterday and taken to the Croydon police station.

The 14-year old Westwood Girls’ College student was reported missing three months ago. She was last seen getting off a bus on Portland Road in November.

Pratt’s parents made a plea for help to find their daughter at a press conference on November 30. She is one of six children and her parents feared the worst.

Mrs Pratt had said: “My instinct tells me someone has got her and is not letting her go.” Her parents said that she had gone missing twice before, but never for as long.

After her disappearance, police handed out leaflets around the Croydon Town Centre and her picture was shown during a Crystal Palace home game against Brighton.

Eastlondonlines later reported that CCTV images had been released by the Metropolitan Police. The pictures showed Shelley Pratt walking along Croydon High Street with a man around midnight on November 9.

Pratt is now under the care of police.
