Sunday, 6th January 2019

THE 17-month-old girl who was taken when her father’s car was stolen has now been found safe and well, police have said.

A nationwide appeal was launched when it was reported that the young girl was in the car.

Maria Tudorica was taken in Nine Acres Close, Newham, east London at 4.37pm.

Scotland Yard tweeted just before 8.00pm she had been found safe and well in the Ruskin Avenue area.

Maria was in the front passenger seat of her father’s black Audi A5 when he met with an unknown man with a view to selling the car, but the thief jumped in and drove away.
