MISSING Huddersfield schoolgirl Kerrie White has been found in London and returned to her home.
The 15-year-old disappeared from her Kirkheaton home on Wednesday, August 26 and failed to return home.
The last sighting of Kerrie was by her uncle at 11.58am on that day at Huddersfield Train Station where she caught a train to Leeds.
It unfolded that the Shelley High pupil had been using internet chatrooms to talk to people across the UK.
But earlier this week the teen got in touch with her family - but told them she wasn't coming home.
The Shelley College pupil first contacted a friend’s daughter via the internet and then rang her mum’s mobile.
“I feel like a weight has been lifted. I’ve heard her voice and I know she’s OK, said Madge, who lives in Kirkheaton with Kerrie’s dad Anthony White and Kerrie’s 17-year-old brother Aiden.
“She said she was safe and in London and she sounded calm, but she said she wasn’t coming home yet.
"I asked her where she was and said I’d come and collect her. I told her to go to a train station or tell the police where she was, but she said she’d ring again soon.”
Yesterday Madge revealed that Kerrie had become obsessed with chatting to people on the social website MSN and there had been concerns that she was chatting to older men in Birmingham and London.
When she left Huddersfield last Wednesday, detectives believe she travelled to Leeds and then on to London with a man who she had met on the internet.
Madge said Kerrie had been using the family computer for the last two years to chat with strangers and then began talking to them over the phone.
Men were ringing the house in the early hours of the morning.
She also revealed she had asked for help from social workers two years ago when problems with Kerrie had started, but there had been no help.
She also said the family had spoken to her about the dangers of the internet and chatting with strangers.
