Missing children 'safe and well'

Four siblings missing from their home in the Irish Republic have been found safe and well in Northern Ireland after a cross-border search, police said.

Two people were arrested after Chloe, Jessica, Jon and Megan Eaton were located in Newcastle, Co Down, at 1pm on Sunday.

A cross-border manhunt was launched when the youngsters, aged from one to 12 years old, vanished from their home in Ardee, Co Louth, in the Irish Republic on Thursday.

It is understood they were left in the care of a man while their mother Rebecca was in hospital.

A Garda spokesman said a 30-year-old man and woman have been arrested and are currently assisting the Police Service of Northern Ireland with their inquiries.

He thanked UK police forces, particularly the PSNI, as well as Interpol and the public for their assistance during the investigation.
