A 15-year-old French girl whose disappearance had triggered a Europe-wide alert was found safe and sound Friday and the much older man she disappeared with was arrested, judicial sources said.
Laureelen Wavelet, 15, had not been seen since she left her school in the northern city of Lens on April 10 in the company of Christophe Lamarre, 48.
Her father, Sylvain Wavelet, was informed on Friday that the teenager and Lamarre had been apprehended in Lens. Lamarre was taken into custody and was expected to appear before a judge later Friday on charges of abducting a minor.
