Beatrice Felicia has been found safe after the car she was in was stolen

We are pleased to confirm police who were hunting for a man who stole a car with a six-year-old on the back seat have found her safe and well.

Police has said that the girl’s father met the unknown man in the Leyton High Road area of east London at around 6.30pm on Tuesday with a view to selling his car.

But the man jumped into the car and drove off with the seller’s daughter, Beatrice Felicia, still sitting in the back.

Thanks to everyone who shared the appeal Beatrice is now back with her family. Well done to all of the officers involved in this fast moving investigation.
