Sharjah: A five-year-old Eritrean girl who went missing from Al Majaz Park in Sharjah, has been found after eight days, a police official confirmed.

The girl’s mother who also disappeared after reporting her missing daughter was also found by the police. The girl had been missing since February 17.

The police said that the mother went into hiding after reporting the missing daughter because she was an illegal resident. Police found out that she managed to find the missing daughter who was staying with an Ethiopian woman who found her lost in the park.

The girl’s mother told police that the girl had gone with her family to Al Majaz Park on Buhairah Corniche in Sharjah and was last seen playing with children but she suddenly disappeared from the park. Many people helped her search for the girl in streets and nearby places but in vain.
