Megan Stammers went missing on September 20
Missing schoolgirl Megan Stammers has been found in France and taken into the care of French police.
The 15-year-old was found in Bordeaux with teacher Jeremy Forrest on Friday at 12:15 BST. Forrest, 30, was arrested on suspicion of child abduction, reports the BBC.
The information which led to them being found came as a direct result of media coverage in France, Sussex Police said.
Megan was reported missing after she did not turn up for school last Friday.
The pair were found in Bordeaux by police acting on a European arrest warrant, said Agnes Auboin, vice-prosecutor in the south-west France city.
"As the girl is a minor, the maximum will be done to return her to her family. She is in good health," she added.
Government sources said at least two British diplomats were travelling with Megan and Forrest, the pair had both spoken to their respective families and their morale was said to be good.
They said the pair were being given legal assistance but there was no information about any possible charges.
Following her discovery Megan's stepfather Martin Stammers wrote on Twitter: "Thank you everyone for everything, massive relief and thrilled to bits, more to follow later."
Megan's mother, Danielle Wilson, later smiled and thanked members of the media waiting outside their home in Eastbourne.
BBC correspondent Luisa Baldini said she was accompanied by what looked like family liaison officers from Sussex Police as she walked into her house.
