In a statement to their social media channels, Surrey Police in the UK confirmed that all three of the children "have been found safe and well".

An urgent search was issued - along with statements to the public asking for assistance in the case - after the children were reported missing at 7:00PM on Monday.

A statement from the department reads: "The three children who went missing from Thorpe Park in Chertsey yesterday afternoon (17 June), have been found safe and well in London.

"Khandi, 14, Amelia, 9, and Malik, 7, were reported missing just after 7PM. They were all known to each other, and the two youngest children are related. They had been at the park on a planned day out and had travelled to Surrey from Milton Keynes. 

"They were last seen walking away from the park towards Chertsey town centre around 3:17PM."

Along with the good news, North Surrey Detective Superintendent Trevor Struthers also issued a statement, saying: "We appreciate the concern that this incident caused, especially given the children’s ages and the fact that they were missing overnight.  

"Our officers and staff have worked tirelessly to locate the three of them and we are all relieved that they have been found safe. 

"We have received a huge amount of information and information and support from both the public and the media and we would like to thank everyone who provided information and shared our appeal."


Concerns for the childrens' well being was high, due to their young ages and theories that they may have ventured into London - where they were eventually found.

Thorpe Park - one of the UK's most popular theme parks - is located in Chertsey, a medium-sized town about 30 minutes’ drive outside of London.

In 2022, the park recorded around 1.6 million guests - an average of more than 4,300 people per days.
