Two sisters, aged 10 and 14, who went missing in Dilbeek (Flemish Brabant province) have been found safe and sound, Child Focus announced on Twitter on Thursday evening.
The foundation had issued a poster appealing for information about the lost girls earlier in the evening, Belga News Agency reports.
The two children had left the family home in the morning. The parents reported them missing and the local police in Dilbeek and the Missing Persons Unit of the judicial police had opened an investigation.
The disappearance was considered worrying because of the young age of the two girls and their clothing, which was not suitable for winter conditions. It remains unclear where the girls were when they were missing.
