TWO MISSING CHILDREN have been located after a search was launched in London.

Police had earlier appealed for information to help find Tiffarah Paul-Wright, two years old, and Aiale Paul-Wright, four years old, who had reportedly been left home alone last night.

At around 9.45pm yesterday the children’s mother was taken to hospital for medical treatment.

Police became aware that she had two young children and immediately made enquiries to locate them at her home address. Officers visited the property but there was no trace of the children.

Officers understood that the children were in the care of an adult, who was known to the children, and attempts were made to trace them.
