Two children aged 8 and 10 who disappeared from an address on Eglinton Road in Woolwich, London around 10 pm on Tuesday have been found on the street in their pyjamas as temperatures hit -2C.

The desperate search began with multiple units checking South East London for the children after Police were called to report that a 10-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy had gone missing.The girl was reportedly wearing pink pyjamas, while the boy was in ‘skeleton’ pyjamas.

Due to the recent development,local Facebook groups were filled with concerned posts asking members of the public if they had seen the children.

“Hug your babies tight tonight. There are two missing children on the Eglinton Road/Herbert Road area. A 10-year-old girl and eight-year-old boy. I sprinted round the entire Barnfield estate looking for them to no avail. The police are with the family now. Please keep an eye out if you live in the area.”

A local taxi rank owner even said she had instructed her drivers to keep a lookout for the missing pair. The search went on for about 40 minutes before the children were found at around 10.40 pm freezing in their pyjamas.

A member of the public was said to have bumped into the pair on Well Hall Road in Eltham and alerted the police.“Appropriate enquiries will follow to establish further details about what happened,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson stated.
